Hand me that microphone, Begoña.

James has recently posted perceptively about getting intermediate students off the plateau and moving on. Among other things he suggests making audio recordings in class, which is something I also do regularly.

I've made a very brief screencast for beginners to audio recording:

Just to recap that:

1. Get hold of Audacity or another audio app.
2. Plug in your mic and hit record.
3. After recording, don't forget to normalize the audio [effect > normalize].
4. Edit out untidiness or silence if necessary [highlight > delete key]
5. Export to mp3 (or similar).

  1. Glad to have been of service, and thanks for the tips - very useful.

  2. Thanks to you! It would be nice if we could do a public brainstorm on ways of using it. I'm sure the hive mind could come up with lots.
