Shadowing

What Is Shadowing?

Shadowing is a technique that is best known in the polyglot community through its description by Alexander Argüelles. (Argüelles did not invent shadowing; see for example Elisabetta Sabatini: Listening comprehension, shadowing and simultaneous interpretation of two ‘non-standard’ English speeches, Interpreting, 5.1 (2000): 25–48.) The first links below are to Argüelles' own explanations, but others have also picked it up.
