Reading practice: "The Bodyguard" by Katherine Center


Practice reading out loud with me.

My goal is to sound like I'm narrating an audiobook, which means I want YOU to feel like you're listening to an audiobook. How does it sound to you? 

Reading out loud in a foreign language is one of the best exercises to teach yourself to understand the rhythm of this language and develop speaking fluency.

To practice reading with me, find this post in the Community of Practice and share your recording!

Read it out loud as if you mean it!
Practice flow, emphasis, thought chunking, pitch, melody, intonations, and pauses so that your speech sounds natural and clear in English.
