I highly recommend it. There was a good deal of "That's not what it's supposed to sound like." in my recording effort. It gives me a feel for the language and has helped me realize that it has one more vowel sound that I was unaware of. Some words that I had been transcribing with an /E/ sound actually have an /e/ sound, and there may be a phonemic long/short distinction for one vowel. Had I not sat down and spoken it, I would never have realized it.
