Webcam for Learning

One of the best things to learn English is by practicing yourself to talk in front of the mirror. I pretty much did it when I was in high school. Even nowadays I sometimes do it whenever I have chance. This allows you to know the way you pronounce certain word as well as to know the rhetoric of yours. Confidence is also thing you’ll get if you do it quite often. I am sure there are more benefits that we can get from doing this thing if we do it in a regular basis, once a week or more is suggested. As technology improves, I now do this in a way that’s more effective and result-producing. Yes, webcam is very good friend of mine in learning English. I just sit before the computer of mine and start recoding myself. I talk about anything I want, such as my idea on something, my experience on that day, my plan, or whatsoever. The key is that I keep practicing to talk in English. The duration doesn’t need to be so long. It’s maybe 3-5 minutes per shot. The video I recorded is saved in my drive so that I can view it at anytime. Besides, it allows me to value myself in case I said wrong word or less appropriate sentences. This evaluation is something that you won’t get if you just talk in front of the mirror. The videos I produce have been sort of entertaining and somewhat witty sometimes. Yes, knowing mistake you make is good point to evaluate your English skill, but it’s often peculiar. Never mind anyway, the point is that our skill in English improves. Aside, no one knows thing you say and do in front of the webcam. Happy learning!
