It's not easy to teach speaking skills remotely through a website, however good the site is. To really practice your speaking skills, you need someone to speak to who can correct your mistakes as you go. The Activities on this website will go some way to helping you improve your speaking skills by helping you mirror the speech you hear in the lesson. By listening to the speech in the Activities and comparing it to your own speech, you can notice how your pronunciation differs and make adjustments to more accurately match the speech in the Activities. Recording your own speech is also a great way to track your progress and identify areas that need improvement.
