Can you think of a book or film that has had a big influence on you? Give a short synopsis of the film and explain why and how it has affected you.

You may wish to reflect on some of the following:

Has your life changed in any way since you saw the film/read the book. What have you learned from it? Has it made you reflect on any aspect of life in particular? Did it change your attitude or way of thinking? Has it made you a better person?

Record yourself on your computer/phone or Vocaroo.com and send your recording to my “tutoría” email. (If you use Vocaroo, just send me the link.)

TTS – TEXT TO SPEECH – PRONUNCIATION HELP

SPEAKING GIF

Many of you have difficulty with English pronunciation. It isn’t just the individual words, but the rhythm and intonation of the English language, which is so different from Spanish.

The following website is a Text To Speech tool. Just type a short text, like this paragraph, choose a voice and listen.  I recommend Rachel’s or Graham’s voice.  But you can try all the British English voices.

The speech you hear is not perfect, but it will help you. Maximum text length is 300 characters.
