G’day, what are you up to mate? Today, I am going to be touching upon the way to increase the effectiveness of read-aloud. I’ve already discussed this sort of thing before, but today I’d like to reiterate the importance of reading aloud English sentences to boost your English overall skills. To maximise the effectiveness of read aloud training, here are the things I had to say:
In the first place, please make sure you could enunciate 44 patterns of English pronunciation, which is one of the prerequisites prior to embarking on read aloud training, because otherwise it’s going to be a waste of time improving nothing
I have to emphasise one thing, which is correction of English pronunciation. Without this being done properly, there will have a kind of waste of time, unfortunately. Some people say reading English sentences aloud can improve your pronunciation. In some minor aspects, yes true, indeed. For instance, if you have only few sounds you tend to mispronounce, then it’s ok for you to read aloud for improving the sounds. But, if you cannot pronounce most of the 44 sounds, then jumping the gun is just preposterous. Once you’ve got accustomed to the mispronunciations, it’s going to be extremely difficult to correct them within a short period of time. So, if you think oh I have some sounds that I’m not confident, then please try to learn pronunciation from scratch, which must be better than spending a waste of time reading aloud without having correct pronunciation.
Then, write down or type up any English sentence in your own words or just quoting from some articles, any of which is perfectly fine
Not merely do you have excellent opportunities to think and write a piece of sentence like a ditty, but you also have more fantastic chances to boost your speaking skills. You don’t have to think too much, but you just write down whatever you come up with. However, ideally speaking, it’s good to have new phrases and words that you have never used before, in which case you’ll have a good chance to get your head round them in practice.
Third, when you are ready for speaking, you’ve got to have a good set-up of shooting videos via your mobile phone’s in-camera or laptop’s
Always reading aloud under a sort of pressure makes you much stronger and less nervous as you do shoot videos every time. For me, I’ve been trying to record and shoot my speaking performance every time, so that it’s much easier and more effective when it comes to doing a piece of analysis. Just reading aloud takes you to nowhere, unfortunately. If you really want to improve speaking skills, then you need to learn from failure or the acknowledgement of bad recitation. Whether you could improve hinges upon how many times you’ve recorded yourself and critically analysed.
Last but not least, you make sure you use any voice recognition site or service during shooting videos
Using a voice recognition site or service is indispensable unless a native tutor or speaker can check your performance on your behalf. If you want to save your money, then use a free voice recognition is the best for you. I believe the accuracy of AI techs has amazingly advanced, and it can check heaps of things that you need for English learning for free. Of course, human is still a better choice, but during this hardest time of the year, we shall use the best of AI-induced apps as your learning companion. But nonetheless, if you need an expert, then please contact me any time via email or leave your comment here, so that you’ll be in touch with me shortly. You concerns about any English learning will soon be resolved and vanished from this universe.
That’s all for today. I do appreciate you having a flick through!
Cheers. Have a good one.
