My Recording

Postby JackFrost » 2005-11-22, 3:19

For you, Kirk (and anyone else). Since I saw you analyzing some people's English in this forum, so I managed to get myself to record myself by reading a new article. So, what do you think? What do you notice? What kind of accent do I have? If there's anything you would like to add, please do so! ;)

Sharon quits Likud, asks to dissolve Israeli parliament

Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon resigned from the Likud party on Monday, saying he was creating a new centrist party to lead into an early election.

The split came hours after Sharon visited Israeli President Moshe Katsav in Jerusalem, asking him to dissolve parliament and call elections for March.

Sharon, who helped found Likud three decades ago, said he broke from the party to escape political bickering that he felt was endangering a "historic opportunity" to forge peace after Israel's withdrawal from the Gaza Strip over the summer.

Sorry I tried downloading it but geocities said your site had already exceeded its data transfer (this could happen a lot if a lot of Unilangers click on it).

I do think it's funny tho that you chose a text with so many foreign words--usually in trying to get a grasp of people's accents it's best to avoid words that might trip people up while they're reading, but I guess it worked for you :)

I guess I'll check back later to see if I can listen to it.

Erm, it works fine for me. And I just put it on few hours ago, so not many people could download it. :?

Hmm..I tried it again and it still didn't work (I've tried saving by right-clicking as well as actually clicking on the link, and when I do the latter is when it tells me the page isn't currently available).

Well I had no problem downloading it this time but when my audio player opened it wouldn't play it (it's not my audio player, as I just tried other sound files and it's working fine)--sorry, I don't know what the problem is! :(

Hmm. That's the shortest downloading file I ever downloaded... It's only 7KB. I think that's the problem.

A new one.

Germany gets first woman leader

BERLIN, Germany -- Angela Merkel was sworn in Tuesday as Germany's eighth post-World War II leader and its first female chancellor, taking an oath of office that commits her to "dedicate my strength to the welfare of the German people."

The inauguration ceremony in parliament formally sealed the conservative Merkel's rise to power after lawmakers elected her chancellor on a vote of 397-202, with 12 abstentions.

Merkel, who succeeds Gerhard Schroeder, is also the first former East German to lead her country.


And the new recording about Ariel Sharon's quitting from the beginning of the topic.

I was able to hear the first one, no problem. That was right after you posted it. Hope that didn't affect it in any way...it shouldn't have.

I can't make out much other than your "r", which sounds typical of the area your from (to me) - I have some friends from Pennsylvania....

Hopefully Kirk will have better luck later too.

Cheers,

Ole
