Does imitation work?

We all know that in order to be understood we got to have a clear accent. Nobody really cares if you have an American or English or whatever accent. But they definitely want to talk with someone who is able to produce understandable English.

In this post you’ll find why imitation is important and how can it help you to improve your spoken English.

How does it work?

When you listen and then imitate you train your brain and mouth simultaneously to produce the best way possible to pronounce the words.

Does it really work?

Definitely, but you have to keep in mind that it’s not magic and it doesn’t work if you’re not doing it for a long period of time. It’s important to be patient when you’re learning a language.

Are there a specific website for good materials?

Well you’re lucky! You can work on any video or audio that you have. You don’t have to have a specific video or a specific course. This means that you can focus on what you really like and enjoy. However I recommend to start with videos that have subtitles. And try to start with short videos.

But you can check the links here for organised materials:

  1. A paid course
  2. A YouTube PlayList
  3. An article

Hope you’ll enjoy this activity and learn a lot. Good luck! =D
