I thought I was done recording the first 500 expressions. But after reviewing the recordings, I decided to re-record the 500. This will take me most of the day to do. Tomorrow, I have to go out of town for 2 or 3 days. So, I had better finish today.
It's Saturday morning. How are you? I finished the first recordings for the web-shop. I recorded the first 2 series of English expressions. I completed Series 100 & Series 200. I sent them to Tokyo for Mr. Sakurai for use with his web-shop. I have 3 more series of one hundred sentences each to record. I will try to do 2 more series today and the final one Sunday. This will complete the recording of the 500 original sentences. The recordings will soon be available on the web-shop for download soon.
2 days ago, I set out to upgrade my computer. I had some problems. I broke the graphics card and needed to have it repaired. So yesterday, I was off-line. Today everything is running fine. I upgraded the memory from 2 to 4 GB and I added a 5oo watt power supply to replace the 300 watt supply I had. In the near future, I will replace the graphics card. The computer is now running fast and quiet.
I decided to upgrade my audio program. I was having problems with exporting mp3 files on line with the Audacity program. So, I spent some extra money and bought the MP3 Maker 15. This is the newest program available for Vista. I like it so far. The recordings I have made are good, But the user's manual is not so good. The explanations are not clear enough for me.
Good morning. How are you?. It's Monday morning in Ohio. Back to work for me. I don't have to work with the family's business, but I will start to make voice recording this week. I need to purchase a new microphone before I can start. I need a noise-cancelling microphone for these recordings. I also need to write some more new lessons this week. So, it looks like a busy week. Contact me if you want!
I'm back. I was busy last week working. I work in the family business. We install carpet and flooring. This week, I have little work so I'm back teaching English this week. I also will be writing new English lessons: Romance English and Medical English. See you later.
Here are some more words listed in Roget's College Thesaurus: announce, state, proclaim, declare, pronounce, articulate. These are listed under Enunciate. See if you can use these words in a sentence. All students should have a Thesaurus. It's very useful to have. I use mine all the time.
Enunciate- to utter or pronounce, esp. in a articulate or a particular manner: to enunciate the words clearly. When you speak English, please enunciate clearly. Open your mouth, make your voice understood. Let the listener hear you.
Today is the start of summer vacation for school children. Summer vacation will last from now until Labor Day in September. This is an old custom. Children during the summer would assist at their family farm. The time period used to be longer, about 4 months. Nowadays, it's about 3 months or less. There are students who are preparing for college or early graduation that will go to school through out the summer.
