Speech Mimicking

Speech Mimicking  involves using a variety to techniques to copy the speaking patterns of a recorded piece of language with the goal of getting close to native speaker pronunciation and intonation.

The method includes:

  • Make notes on the  transcript to indicate pauses, changes in pitch, word linking, and other speech patterns
  • Read lines into Google Translate the check word level pronunciation
  • Listen/Repeat (sentence by sentence)
  • Listen/Whisper Adjust playback speed if necessary.
  • Listen/ Shadow Read (turn the volume down)
  • Record again. Listen. Circle parts that need the most improvement.
    Practice those parts.
  • Try anything else you think will be helpful
