You might be right there. xD

I've recorded a sample and sent it to Torsten, who has kindly put it up in the usual place. Hopefully you'll all be able to understand it.

EDIT: It would seem the recording under my name (James Gilbert) isn't of my voice. Perhaps it's just me...

Hi James,

Thanks a lot for pointing this out -- now you can listen to your sample recording (number 17).

Listenings - Brandee #78 (permalink) Sat Sep 12, 2009 12:00 pm   Listenings - Brandee

Hi, I am an ESL teacher and I was listening to a recording made by Brandee - the one with the story of Andrew, the man who never went anywhere without his coat. I noticed that in her recording she made a few errors in reading the words, and I feel it is really important that English learners hear words read correctly: She read the word 'anecdote' as 'antidote', pronounced the River Thames using the 'th' as in 'the' and the 'a' as in 'tame' and read the word 'palpable' as 'palapable' - (a new word in English, perhaps?) I don't mean to be overly critical and if it were just a question of accent I wouldn't have said anything, but these are actual errors in reading and lower the standard of what you offer. I hope this is found to be constructive.

I would like to know if you are still looking for Native speakers of the English language?

You'll see my first recording posted at the end of the list here, under the name Scott Jack. I've sent a second to Torsten that should have less background noise that the first.

Please feel free to give your thoughts!

Hi Torsten,

I'll send an MP3 in the next couple of days. I'm a native speaker and an ESL teacher at a major Australian university (I'm half British and spend time there also so I would say I have a pretty clear and easy-to-understand accent!).

When do you think you might start the project?

Sarah Norman.
