    Hey Daniel,
    I like reading out loud but unfortunately there’s nobody to correct my pronunciation most of the time. However, my anki cards have the pronunciation of words which makes it easier to improve my speaking skills. I can repeat after them.
    Thanks for the episode, it was really interesting 🙂

      Hi Caro!
      Thank you for your kind comment!
      I assume for you as a French teacher it would be very easy to find a tandem partner or one of your students who is willing to check for the correct pronunciation! You could record yourself!
      But anyways, I envy you a bit for your perfect and clear pronunciation in English!
      Viele Grüsse!
