Hi Everyone This is walled, Today I’m going to show you how you can practice speaking English by yourself at home. In order to become a good English speaker you should speak a lot with native speaker, but what if you don’t have anybody to speak English with, on the other hand you may lack confidence or feel shy or perhaps you study English from text book with your eyes and you feel your pronunciation was not good. I’m going to teach you a technique to improve your English speaking and pronunciation, this technique is of course shadowing, the idea behind shadowing is simple. You listen to some English and you repeat it at the same time. It could be a conversation or TV show it doesn’t matter. The first thing it will improve your pronunciation and will help you to speak more smoothly. The goal is to copy that speaker so closely that you become that speaker. Every single little pause and rhythm and everything you should be trying to copy those as closely as you can. You will find this quite hard and it takes time. But repetition is the key I recommend. Try shadowing technique using TalkEnglish.com and you will see how much it can improve your pronunciation and help you to speak English more smoothly and naturally. After tried leave a comment under the post and let me know what do you think about shadowing technique.

Thanks,
#Walled Mohamed
