Practicing Speaking English by Shadow Reading

Grace from Korea here.

I practiced speaking English by shadow reading. :D
The original video I practiced was Oprah's speech video that she told Harvard graduates ; <There is No Such Thing as Failure>

As usual, English is difficult.. haha :-p
I got to think again that we have to keep practicing reading English !!
Because learning English is always hard for who are learning English as a second language.. right?

Here's my 'Before' audio that I recorded.

Let me write down the subtitles of speech here.

<There is No Such Thing as Failure>
by Oprah

I know that you all might have a little anxiety now
and hesitation about leaving the comfort of college
and putting those Harvard credentials to the test.

But no matter what challenges or setbacks or disappointments you may encounter along the way, you will find true success and happiness if you have only one goal.
There really is only one, and that is this :

to fulfill the highest, most truthful expression of yourself as a human being.
You wanna max out your humanity by using your energy to lift yourself up, your family and the people around you.

Theologian Howard Thurman said it best.
He said, "Don't ask yourself what the world needs."

"Ask yourself what makes you come alive and then go do that,
because what the world needs is people who have come alive."

And here's my 'After' audio !

What do you think?
Did it get better? :)

I need to keep on practicing and I will !
Why don't you try ?

And the website I used, 
English Central is a very great website to learn English !
Please check it out.

See you soon ~ :D
