teach to pass for a native?

by Libor Supcik

I very much get why there is no 'beware, non native' warning. Why people, who live 40 years in immersion do not lose their accent? It is silly of you to presume that any internet, non bespoke, course can do much to nativise a learner's accent. There are situations, jobs where students should try or care to pass for a native, yet these need special accent trainers.
Else I sometimes do not like his Michel's mannerism...still there should not be an irritable teacher warning.
