Reading news in English said the man born October 9, 1995 and then a little difficult. Reading news in English that must be considered the most is a matter of pronunciation. In English there are uses of words that are not commonly used. For example, mentioning the names of people, places and so on. Because of that unusual words are used to be said well because they can confuse the listener. In addition, he continued, in reading the news the intonation said must be clear so that listeners can listen to the news that was delivered. The most important thing to note is that reading news in English should not exceed 45 seconds. Therefore the news submitted must be concise, concise and clear. “These things must be really considered,” he said.
Reading the news, in English it is said to be more challenging because it must be done in a short time but can be understood by the listener. Ricky’s work effort to win news reading competitions in English is not in vain.
