Copying is good. In fact, the better you copy someone, the faster you will improve.
Copy the speaker’s intonation, rhythm, and stress. Copy the sounds that they make. This will improve your pronunciation and you will learn new words and internalize grammar.
Get audio that is specific to you and your goals.
