Improving your Speaking with Connected speech practice

Hello Listening and Speaking Writing Workshop Participants!

We have been looking at some examples of connected speech in the listening and speaking workshop. The example we saw is from Elemental English videos on Youtube. Watch them in order to improve your speaking and connected speech. We also saw videos on Richard’s site, Lingua Spectrum.

Rachel’s English is another great place to listen to learn how to speak well in English.
