  1. you can put feeling into the poem when you read it out loud but there's no feeling when you read in your head.

  2. I think that you read in your head and then you are done. But when you read out loud you put so much much work into it.

  4. I think when you read a poem aloud, you read it with more emphasis. For example, you might read it with an accent or make it flow better.

  5. If you read out loud you can here yourself talk and understand the book more. Also if you just read in your head you cant really say "Oh my" reading but out lond you can emphasis it more.

  8. I think that you have more emphasis then in your head. I also think that you can have different voices out loud and in your head your head you only have one.
