Experiment in "shadowing"

14 Jun 2011

For several years, I've heard about a mysterious technique for language learning called shadowing.

I understood that it had to do with repeating after a recording of a native speaker, however, I didn't really know more than that. But recently I've become more interested!

It all started because I want to improve my Polish pronunciation. While its strongest proponents assert that shadowing is a complete language learning technique, many people say that it's particularly great for improving pronunciation.

So, I've decide to experiment using shadowing with Polish!

In this article, I describe my plan for this experiment. I'm completely new to the technique, but I know that many readers of the blog already use it. Please give me your advice!
