It’s one of the highest recommended books in the history of reading and I am finally getting a chance to read it. However, I’m trying something new this time; I’ve downloaded the audiobook and am playing it while reading the real book. Well, the purpose is to help my spoken English because I couldn’t and still can’t afford a tutor to help my pronunciation, not that it’s bad but I want to be better.
I’ve tried to do that today, I couldn’t read loudly with the audiobook, had a few problems with concentrating and understanding the story because when you’re a bilingual, it takes a bit longer to think of what you’re reading unless you’ve got a proper help but I’m still determined on trying something new. I highlight the words I can’t pronounce well then go back to read it again on my own. Sometimes I read the same paragraph two or three times especially when there’s a new word to me, it’s actually interesting.
So what do you think of that? is it a good way to learn from the audiobook? do you recommend another policy that shall assist my reading as well as speaking skills? most importantly, have you read the book? what do you think of it? I’d like a second opinion. 🙂
