After 14 hours of teaching over the last two days, I was ready to head home by 6pm today. But my school had other ideas; a last-minute need for a British male speaker to work alongside a female American to record 20+ pages of dialogue. They will be used in listening tests for half a million graduating Primary School students. It took Cissy and I about 3 hours to get through, which wasn't bad. We only made half a dozen slip-ups between us during the whole thing. The Professor, who has been recording these every 6 months for 7 years, said we were amongst the best pairings he'd used. BBC World Service, take note!
