I'm glad we read our essay aloud. I think reading our essays aloud helps us see the errors that we make and it's easier to correct. I found that I repeated myself many times and now I know I need to fix it and make changes.

I like reading our essays out loud, not only does it help us find errors in our own work. But it's nice to see how other peoples essays are coming along.

It definitely felt werid saying it a loud.... I found that a lot of my sentences were too long... and I ran out of breath at the end of like all of them. It is a good tool to make sure we don't have run ons and that we have correct grammar :)

READING OUR ESSAYS OUTLOUD HELPS US PRACTICE AND AT THE SAME TIME DO A BIT OF PUBLIC SPEAKING ...

It is true, reading your essay a loud helps bring the errors to the surface. You actually see and hear them, instead of skipping over them.
