To read or not to read aloud in class

We chose this website, because we think it is interesting. We like the diagrams and the surveys. Here there are some questions about reading aloud:

When we do a Reading Practice activity, …

I usually volunteer to read aloud    
I sometimes volunteer to read aloud    
I rarely volunteer to read aloud    
I never volunteer to read aloud

If it were my choice, …

I would never read aloud    
I would sometimes read aloud    
I would be the only one to read aloud    

When I read aloud in class, I generally feel…

confident. I have an opportunity to show the teacher how good my English is!    
nervous. What if I don’t know some of the words?    
proud. The teacher rarely corrects my pronunciation.    
insecure. I know I will make mistakes.    
indifferent. It’s boring anyway!    
uncomfortable. Everyone will be looking at me.    
bad. They’ll laugh at my pronunciation.    
embarrassed. The teacher always corrects my pronunciation.    
scared. Why me? What have I done?    

Write a comment about your feelings.
