I feel masochistic: record yourself and talk about a topic of your choice.

The hardest part of that would be to come up with something to speak about ...

edit: watching some video and commenting it simultaneously via your audio recording might be a funny way to circumvent this problem (and maybe I'm the only one having it)

I don't speak Danish well enough to really talk about anything, but I'm not going to let that stop me. If nothing else, maybe this can be a "before" video, and I can make an "after" video at the end of my output challenge to see if I've made any progress.

June Challenge - Vlogging

Following Sarnek's masochistic suggestion, the output part of June's challenge consists of recording yourself speaking freely your target language. It may be previously rehearsed and even memorized, just avoid reading. Video is optional, audio-only will be enough.

As for the input alternative, find vlogs in your source Scandinavian language and watch at least 2 minutes of video. They have to be personal, actual vlogs about people introducing themselves and talking about their hobbies. No newscasts, no TV series, only personal videos which are probably going to have a selfie camera. The idea is to become familiarized with speaking about yourself in your target language, just like with the output part.

The challenge is due to the end of the month but, as has been the case with the other teams, feel free to post this and the other challenges anytime.

EDIT: Formatting.

Ok, I'll upload my little experiment.

It's meant to be like a radio commentary, but I'm not as enthusiastic as those football commentators I'm afraid. I say in the beginning that I will post a link to the video I'm describing, but I won't for now, maybe later.

edit: adding the link to the video
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0e0nNZaNVnI
It's good music :)

In my log you'll find some additional notes/observation I made after listening to my recording.
And my pronunciation is certainly much sloppier than AlOlaf's ;) Speaking Danish isn't easy, I absolutely agree with Al.

Wow, you must be hating me right now XD.

I'll follow up immediately:
My June Challenge

It's neither very coherent in what I say nor particularly correct in its form, but I hope that my point gets across.
