Think of all of the reading materials you come in contact with on a daily basis. Take a few moments to read the first few sentences aloud, making sure to accurately produce a target sound, use appropriate word or sentence level stress, practice voice projection, or reinforce any of your new speech and communication goals.
Here are at least 36 reminders (yes, 36) of what you are exposed to daily to heighten your awareness:
2. Business cards
3. Technical manuals
8. LinkedIn postings
1. Bulletin boards/announcements
On the road:
1. Highway signs
2. Street signs
3. Construction/traffic warnings
4. Bus/train schedules
5. Storefront signs
6. Carry-out menus
8. Children’s books (read-alouds)
9. Cards and letters
11. Facebook updates
Make a point to read as much as you can out loud every day! You will make a significant dent in your practice time!
