The Advantages Of Recording Yourself In English


There are many steps  you can take to improve your English fluency, but recording yourself might be something you haven't considered!

Just the thought of this might be terrifying for a lot of people,  but it actually has a lot of benefits.

Firstly, you might be ale to hear mistakes that you had previously missed, and you may be more likely to notice pronunciation errors.

You can also use it as a way to monitor your progress, by recording the same thing over a series of time.

And if nothing else, the whole activity will make you feel more brave, and definitely more confident to speak!

Top Tip

Follow the transcript of a TED Talk, and record yourself reading some of it.

Then, listen to the original video and compare, especially focusing on pronunciation, intonation and sentence stress. 

There are also variations of this, such as listening to the video first to focus on the pronunciation, and then recording yourself saying it in the same way.
