Old Year and New Year by Christina Rossetti

New Year met me somewhat sad:
Old Year left me tired,
Stripped of favourite things I had
Baulked of much desired:
Yet further on my road to-day
God willing, further on my way.

    Yes, it seems like Gomaa had a few problems while recording, but this should improve over time. Thank you for having added him to the ER newsreaders @aladdin. :smiley:

    I understand you @Zom and I'm interested to record , so I'm supposed to use spreaker right?

    @peaceculture2

    Spreaker is a good tool for this activity:
    - It's free.
    - You can either record directly or upload your recording there.
    - You can make it downlable for DJ Aladdin to collect it for ER.

    That said feel free to use any tool you prefer as long as your recording remains downlable afterwards.

    Looking forward to discovering your voice. ^-^

    Dear @Zom, I'll record news round up #190 and I'll post here on Sunday. I'm going to do it regularly (if I can't due to busy schedule at work I'll let you know it).

    Thanks @kindgnice

    Wow! I'm speechless. You truly did an amazing job my friend. I'm very happy and impressed listening your professional attack of reading the news. Excellent! Keep it up buddy. God bless you always. :innocent:
  • ZomZom Posts: 1,737 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Thanks Torellip. It's nice to count you among the regulars. :)
  • Shiny03Shiny03 Posts: 2,625 ✭✭✭✭
    @rupsil Thank you for your contribution and excellent work :)
  • rupsilrupsil Posts: 223 ✭✭✭
    Thanks @kindgnice but it is not a professional attack :) I used the records to check if Audacity is a good software.
  • rupsilrupsil Posts: 223 ✭✭✭
    Thanks @Shiny03 . Very kind of you.

    Wow my friend, you're so humble. :)
    I agree, Audacity is one of the reliable tools when it comes to audio editings. ;)
    Honestly, the professional attack term was based from my honest observations after hearing the quality of your voice. ;)
    You're always welcome. :innocent:

    @torellip Yaay! I am looking forward to hear your unique accent as I really like it. :)
  • torelliptorellip Posts: 493 ✭✭✭✭
    Thank you @Bubbly. I listened to your recording on News Round up 190. It's perfect!! Why do you say that you don't have a good English accent?
    I have never realized how much strong my Italian accent is when I speak English, until I listened to my first recording. Sometimes it leads to a mispronounce and I'm not understood. I hope that read aloud regularly will improve my pronunciation.
  • BubblyBubbly Posts: 29,668 ✭✭✭✭✭✭
    @torellip the beauty of LEN is that you will be given every platform to use openly for learning English. It takes self learning approach, where after sometime you start correcting your own mistakes.

    Improve your pronunciation not your accent. Keep it very unique. :)
