#30DaysofEnglish - Day #3

Let’s improve our pronunciation and reading skills. 🗣 📖
.

  1. Read the next text out loud, check the pronunciation of the words you don’t know in a dictionary and imitate the sounds 🎵
  2. You can do it in front of a mirror if you want to work on your fear of public speaking.
  3. Let me know what words were difficult for you to pronounce.
    .
    Take your English class on pronouncing the s in English
    .

🍱 “I sometimes go out to eat at a restaurant if I don’t have time to cook or I just want to relax. My favorite place is a Mexican restaurant downtown, and the décor and atmosphere are very authentic. You usually don’t have to make a reservation unless you are planning to go during a busy time. The prices are very reasonable, and the service is great. Best of all, the portions are large, and the food is superb. I always make sure to leave a generous tip…” 💴

Hi!
Great practice!
I used an audio-to-text app to check if I pronounce correctly.
In general, I did it well, but I had problems with the pauses and also when I found difficult words together.
