My former (and best) German teacher told us to recite a text with our cat.
It’s not a bad idea because it’s an excellent pronunciation exercise.
It’s a bit like if you learned to pronounce a language with a song.
If you don’t have a pet, just use a mirror. Or better. Record yourself.
Read the text aloud first. Rehearse until you know it by heart.
Watch your last records, compare and take notes.
You’ll never stop improving your pronunciation and communication skills.
It’s also an excellent exercise to get ready for conferences and public presentations.
