Story Reading/continuing and Recording.

Hello, Gabriel and Ec members!
 I have noticed when it comes to improving reading skills many people prefer to read stories and novels… mostly fictions. So why not to read and record only stories? Yes, you have heard it right. In this forum, I would like to invite EC members to read the story and record their voice. A story can be SHORT STORY or any MODERATE-SIZED STORY  or any NOVEL. I believe, starting with short and moderate-sized stories would be convenient for all of us.


How to read the story?
1. Select any story which you want to read.
2. Read a few lines or a paragraph or more than one paragraph and record it and post here.
3. DO NOT READ THE COMPLETE STORY.
4. Another member who wishes to continue to read the same story should listen to it and leave a comment expressing their interest.
5. After leaving a comment another member will then continue the story reading, will record and post it. (This will be continued until we reach the end of the story).
6. I hope it will be so interesting and great experience to listen to the same story in different voices.

 

Kindly make sure when you record your story you give proper title while recording, for an example, THE AlCHEMIST PART 1,  another member will keep the title THE ALCHEMIST PART 2 and so on.


Now the question is the availability of the same story for all the members. All EC members’ suggestion will be taken on which book to read. Once the decision is taken (by all or majority of members) that book will be uploaded here by any member who is having that book in PDF format.

Here is the link of the free file hosting website where you can store and share the files up to 5GB.

  • Hi, SNR! First I must CONGRATULATE you for coming up with such GREAT IDEA. You deserve a round of applause! There's no doubt this activity will be beneficial to our Club/Group members. They can polish their READING and LISTENING skills here. What makes it interesting is they can let the world listen to them. That's awesome! All they have to do is simply follow your INSTRUCTIONS given above. It's that easy! I'm really impressed how you have formulated the post. You have touched on everything that is needed to make it easy for the participants. Well done, SNR! 

    By the way, post a short blog about this READING ACTIVITY if possible. That will take the news to many others who are not a member of the "ENGLISH PRONUNCIATION" Group.

    • Hello Gabriel! 

      Happy to see your comment. I will post a blog when I get free time. 

      Please do recommend some books/ novels in order to start this activity. 

      Your feedback is valuable for me. :))

      It would be great if some good readers like you, Olga, Rose , Gorki and Mayumi take an initiative and start reading and recording. 

       

  • Such a great idea, dear SNR!!!! Let's see who else will support us )) Gabriel must be happy for encouraging so many people.

    • Hello dear Olga!

      I am glad you liked my idea. Gabriel is  peach. Indeed, he does support and motivate all the members. We need people like Gabriel here to keep this site alive. 

      We need support of other members too to make this activity possible.

      Hoping for the best. :) 

      Thanks a lot dear for backing up my idea. :))

    • Yes, I'm indeed very happy and excited to see this great activity from SNR. Hope many members of MyEC take this opportunity to their advantage!  

  • Eagerly !
