so i just started reading out loud on lingq and i can’t stop laughing and smiling.
as much as i can understand a lot of the language, it felt so weird to actually speak it at length. normally i just speak with the simple vocabulary and grammar I am comfortable enough to use, so speaking native level sentence constructions was mind-blowing. also, i speak very little normally because i run out of things to talk about and don’t live in Germany, which limits things quite considerably.
Reading out loud seems to be both an effective way of internalising the language and actually putting it to use at the same time.
I read a medium length article about Annalena Baerbock and noticed when i stopped reading I was having a lot more thoughts in German, like I woke up a sleeping part of my brain. it felt great.
does anyone else here think this could also be a good strategy in the long run? i can see myself doing a lot more of it from now on.
