Practice English by Reading Out Loud

Read Aloud Practice - Practice English by Reading Out LoudWhen learning to read aloud practice as small children in kindergarten or preparatory school, one of the activities that the teacher would ask the kids to do is to say the numbers and the words out loud. This makes the brain record the sound of the words as spoken by the child. Once it hears the words out loud, it will never forget the way the sound goes with the image.



We were taught as kids to start reading aloud in class. First, it would start with letters or numbers which slowly became more complicated as the years went on and we got older. By the time we reach grades one or two, the language teacher would start insisting that we learn to read our books quietly, some would cheat and whisper to themselves because they have to listen to their own voice, or else find it difficult to understand. Eventually, the whispering becomes less and less until finally reading silently, we still can hear our voice, but only in the silence of the mind.



The whole scenario changes when we get to high school and college. The language teacher turns to become the literature one, and this time they insist that we start reading out loud. Why is there a sudden change of technique?



Well, at this point, we start learning newer ideas. Slang is what we hear. We use that instead of proper English. So the lit teacher says we have to read out loud to improve our deteriorating reading and pronunciation skills. Eventually, we get back on the saddle and we start reading out loud poems or literature. All of which contain gentle cadences which change the mood of the written word.

These techniques are what you as a learner of the English language should take into consideration. Your mind had been trained to listen to your own native language and it is resisting the learning. So you can train your mind to listen to something new by actually reading out loud the words in a book. With feelings and emotions as the word turns. This way, what the eyes see, the brain will hear and the learning becomes faster. You can develop skills wich will get better the more you keep read aloud. Practice!
