Short Talk

A place to practice speaking and share your opinion about 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." Now, it's time to get the ball rolling.
