Tim's Tips

As well as shadow speaking, self-talk is another technique for improving speaking by yourself.

This can be simply describing what you are doing in English, or maybe practising telling anecdotes and stories about your life.

Reading aloud from books, magazines and online articles and features is another method.

Why not try dicating to your smart phone or computer? Many devices can transcribe what you say to them. Make sure the language is set to English, and see if what they write is what you say. They aren't perfect but may give you an idea if your pronunciation is clear and understandable.
