EC's social network
In 2012 many people participated in the Be a Newscaster group. I figured it was time to start a NEW Discussion for 2013. Better late than never! Thank you to all of the dedicated members, including Nadira and Gabriel who continue to support this group!
Every Tuesday English Club publishes a weekly news report. There is a self study exercise to go with the story.
You can practise your speaking by recording your voice as you read the transcript. Upload your report in the comments below by using a program like Audioboo, or by recording it on your computer and using the paperclip above to upload the MP3 file. You can share your recording each week.
You can also record yourself answering the discussion question. Have fun!
Thank you to all of the advanced learners and teachers who help out in this group!
Let's start with this week's story: Garment Factory Collapses in Bangladesh
I’m pleased to hear the invitation has caught your eye!

Your voice is as sweet as how your name sounds. I enjoyed listening to your recording. I like the clarity in your voice. Keep up the good work!
Note: The letter ‘e’ in ‘trapped’ is silent.
Wow! That's a great way to help with pronunciation, Gabriel. I'm so impressed!
@Sweety Here are the instructions for"How To Embed Audioboo" on MyEC.
Excellent! Thanks for joining! You speak at a wonderful pace. You seem to understand how to use "stress" very well. Gabriel has offered some excellent tips for correcting some of the sounds in a few words. See below.
