Today will be all about “scripted” conversations. As you are aware all groups of our project are required to at least partly script their conversation for the final recording sessions. Some may wonder, whis is that so?
Well, the answer is quite simple. On the one hand it is the most efficient way (method) of recording a good quality podcast without having any radio or professional recording knowledge. Even though a podcast is shaped like a radioshow, it is rather unprofessional and has a relatively personal attitude towards the audience that is achieved mostly through natural conversation.
On the other hand, a scripted conversation is the only way for us to really measure improvement of spoken English by objective standards and give advice on how to further develop a more natural sounding English.
In addition, a script may help the students to feel more comfortable and confident at first until they are used to speaking freely about their topic while being recorded.
That’s it for this week, so stay tuned for more information!
Until next week!
