If you were an actor trying to imitate an American speaker, how would you talk? Pretend you are a native speaker. Imitate the sound. Play with it. Practice it. Have fun with it! Most people considerably reduce their accent with this technique.

Fun discovery - Have you ever noticed that American speakers don't move their mouths much when they talk? We use a lot of neutral vowel sounds and don't round our lips much. Non-native speakers often sound like they are over-pronouncing. So, use less mouth opening and mouth movements. It will likely reduce your accent! Try it with the phrase "fun discovery"!
