    - Record a 30 second long description of your weekend (without preparing)

    - Listen to yourself and decide what can be improved (vocabulary, grammar, amount of detail).

    - Mute the 1st recording / don’t delete it. Record the same talk again.

    - Listen to the 2nd recording and compare it to the 1st one. What is different? Better?

3. Recorded conversations (phone tag)

  • Individually, spend 30-60 seconds thinking about Audacity. What do you like/dislike about it? How could you use it in your teaching?

  • Then record some of your thoughts. Don’t speak for more than a minute.

  • Then swap computers with your partner (who just finished doing the same thing). Now, listen to her ideas.

  • Stay at your partner’s computer and record a response. You can also ask some questions to your partner.(1st, mute the 1st recording. Then press record and start speaking).

  • Now swap computers again and repeat the cycle.
