Part 2: Reading

Read the following text silently once, so that you are familiar with the content. When you are ready to do your test reading, read the passage at a natural, steady pace. Don't worry if you make mistakes or stumble over a word.

Start recording when you are ready.

"Pet food is big business. It's no surprise to learn we spend a large part of our shopping budget on feeding our pets. Nothing seems too good for that faithful friend who greets you after a long day at the office. But are we really doing the right thing by our furry friends? Perhaps rewarding them with what they enjoy most may not be good for their health."

Stop the recording and name it "reading".

Part 3: Conversation

 

Tell me a little bit about yourself:

  1. Where are you from? 

  2. What kind of work do you do? 

  3. Why are you interested in changing your pronunciation or accent?

  4. Anything else that you would like me to know.
