What do you think of the idea of reading texts aloud?
Heinrich Schliemann: “Necessity taught me a method which greatly facilitates the study of the language. This method consists of reading a great deal aloud, without translating, having a lesson every day, constantly writing essays about subjects of interest, correcting these under the supervision of a teacher, learning them by heart, and repeating in the next lesson what was corrected on the previous day ”
Neil Gaiman, British author: “We have an obligation to read aloud to our children. To read them things they enjoy. To read to them stories we are already tired of. To do the voices, to make it interesting and not to stop reading to them just because they learn to read to themselves.” (2013)
