Balancing Things Out . . . ?

. . . An attempt to restore a kind of balance.



 

Every time I thought about my abortive attempt to record the Skype group conversation with Carla Arena, Erika Cruvinel, a­nd a number of students from Carla's online class "Listening Plus," I felt bad— mostly because I didn't want the students to feel that what they had heard was typical of
international communication via Skype—
and I felt worse because several of them said that they were excited to be able to talk with "a real American."

Hoping to turn a colossal lemon into some lemonade, I transcribed what I said in the original Skype recording and re-re­corded it.

If you click ­HERE, you'll be taken to a webpage with a written introduction, then a link to the actual re-recording.
