Information

Short Talk

A place to practice speaking and share your opinion for the daily topics or questions.

The main purpose of the group is to talk as often as possible by answering to the various daily topics or questions via recordings. Sometimes we may not find a partner at a certain amount of time for practicing speaking online, or may not have opportunities to speak English every day; in that case here is the place. Aside from that, recording your vocal messages may also help others to practice their listening comprehension, to get used to different accents, and to learn something interesting from you. It might track your progress as well. As the old saying goes, "practice makes perfect."

Hi Guru,

Thank you for the message. Maybe you can find native English speakers on group Skype, or use "search" to find the members you need.

Hi…Seeking “Native-English speaking” partner..……can anyone help me???

My Skype id : guruprasadroyal1982

Note : It’s only to improve speaking skills and no need to share any personal details including your name. Also, I’m bit nervous when having conversations with girls/ladies..…so, I just want to overcome it.

Thanks a lot for helping Toni, Steve!  I agree that "Vocaroo" is more easy and convenient than others. Only it may not be allowed to keep for long. Anyway, try it. Or, if it still not works. Please click teacher Gabriel's blog. Good luck and see you later, Toni.

Hi Toni, you can click the link above, the best is "Vocaroo", then you record your voice and copy the link to the comment box.
