Becky: Alright, listeners, here are the top 5 hacks and tactics to perfect your speaking....
Peter: ...with our language learning system.
Becky: Let’s jump into it.
Peter: First: shadow the dialogues you hear in the lessons.
Becky: Shadowing is a learning technique where you mimic native speakers.
Peter: In other words, you listen and then you repeat what they say.
Becky: This is the fastest and easiest way to start practicing speaking.
Peter: You can do this with any one of our audio or video lessons...
Becky: ...and what’s even easier, if you have access to the Dialogue section, you can read along out loud as you listen.
Peter: Listeners, shadow as much as possible to perfect your speaking...
Becky: ...and try harder lessons to take yourself to the next level.
Peter: Second: read the dialogue out loud.
Becky: We just brought it up it in the first part.
Peter: ...but this tactic deserves it’s own special mention. Here’s why.
Becky: Reading out loud is another easy way to practice your speaking.
Peter: Simply read the lesson dialogue that’s available in the dialogue section...
Becky: ...the lesson notes or the lesson transcript.
Peter: By reading out loud, you’re practicing your speaking skills.
Becky: And here’s a trick - if you can get yourself to read faster... you’ll be able to speak faster too!
Peter: That’s a great point, Becky. Natives tend to speak fast and if you can too...
Becky: ...that’s a sign that you’re quite good.
Peter: Third: record yourself speaking to perfect your pronunciation.
Becky: If you’re a Premium or Premium PLUS member, look for the voice recorder in the dialogue section.
Peter: With this tool, you can record yourself and compare your speaking...
Becky: ...to a native speaker.
Peter: This is powerful because you instantly hear the difference between....
Becky: ...your speech...
Peter: ...and the authentic, native pronunciation.
Becky: And then you can easily perfect your speaking and pronunciation.
Peter: If you don’t have a Premium account, record yourself with your smartphone.
Becky: And while you can’t really compare, you CAN spot where you struggle or stutter.
Peter: Exactly. Professional speakers, public speakers... anyone that has to give a presentation. They ALL use this tactic.
Becky: Fourth: If you’re a Premium PLUS member, record yourself...
Peter: ...and send it to your Premium PLUS teacher for feedback.
Becky: Here, you’re getting instant feedback from a native. They’ll point out your mistakes..
Peter: ...they’ll tell you what to improve and how...
Becky: ...and record themselves and work with you until you reach perfection.
Peter: That’s the power of having a native speaker give you feedback.
Becky: Peter, but what should our listeners say? What are they recording?
Peter: Here’s an easy one: Record a 1-paragraph self intro. In fact, we ask all of our new members do this. So...Give your name. Your age. Where you’re from. Why you’re learning. And that’s it.
Becky: Yeah, that’s a great way to get started.
Peter: Our more advanced students talk about their day. They send 3 recordings, in the morning, in the afternoon, at night. For example “I woke up at 7AM and brushed my teeth. I got ready for work. My train was a little late, etc.”
Becky: Listeners, this will dramatically improve your speaking...
Peter: ...because you’re practicing conversations that people have all the time.
Becky: And the fifth way to perfect your speaking: Premium PLUS assignments.
Peter: This is our newest feature and with this...
Becky: ...you get weekly assignments based on your needs and goals...
Peter: whether they’re reading, writing, listening or speaking. Now, if you want to improve your speaking...
Becky: ....your Premium PLUS teacher will send you speaking assignments ..
Peter: ...non-stop, every week, and provide you with constant feedback...
Becky: ...as part of your personalized learning experience.
Peter: So, listeners take advantage of our tools...
Becky: ...put these tactics to use...
Peter: and remember...
Becky: If you want to master your language with our complete language learning system...
Peter: Now’s your chance.

Hi, are you able to advise where the voice recording tool in the dialogue box section is? I've just reviewed some lessons and can't find where they'd be,thanks.
