American Accent Training Hello , everyone . My name is A'mr 
I'm taking up an American Accent Training and the course started with the intonation , I find it interesting and I love it , but actually I  have a question to the native speakers . Is the intonation really used ? I mean that part of stair-case intonation , Is it really important when you're listening to someone in everyday English ? 
I know it's pretty important in situations like making presentation , giving a speech or doing an interview but I'm talking about the informal situations , Is it that important
plz correct me if there're mistakes

In my opinion, there's no need to try to pick up an accent as long as your accent is not heavily influenced by your native language. Perhaps you could try to neutralize a bit to sound more natural. Yes, intonation is used in everyday conversation but I would suggest you to revisit your decision to learn a specific accent. I don't know, its strange for me to think of teaching myself a different accent and trying to speak like that all my life rather my naturally acquired accent.

@Emily I think I got your idea , but I want to learn the American Accent because I want to teach English as a foreign language , so I'm working on making my language sounds like a native
