There is wind where the rose was,
Cold rain where sweet grass was,
And clouds like sheep
Stream o'er the steep
Grey skies where the lark was.

Nought warm where your hand was,
Nought gold where your hair was,
But phantom, forlorn,
Beneath the thorn,
Your ghost where your face was.

Cold wind where your voice was,
Tears, tears where my heart was,
And ever with me,
Child, ever with me,
Silence where hope was.

    @torellip , as English learners we have some difficulties to reproduce the correct accent, but the most important is to be understood.
    A friend from Voxopop (Kirsti) always said that I mumble when I talk in English. :D
    Your NRU#190 is great.
  • torelliptorellip Posts: 797 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Thanks @Rupsil. I agree with you. I'm not looking for a British accent, but I'd like to have a good pronunciation. Some sounds are very difficult for me (th, r and all those consonants all together..).
    Great job @Scott. I really appreciate it. I'm looking forward to hearing your recording of NRU191.

    DJ @aladdin, here we go with 4 fantastic newsreaders to broadcast this week on English radio.

    They are @Bubbly, @torellip, @rupsil, @kindgnice and @Scott which means Pakistani, Italian, Brazilian, Filipino and Korean voices presenting News Round Up #190. <3

    Guys, you can't imagine how much more interesting it is to have a variety of voices and accents reading the news. I can tell you because I switch English Radio on every day and News Round Up is broadcast 6 times a day for a full week. It would be boring listening to Amatsu only despite her "perfect" British accent. (No offense Amatsu.)

    A special thank you to @Bubbly and @Scott who have just joined the team of newsreaders.

    You're doing great guys. Thank you for the hard work you put in this as I know that it's not as easy as it might sound like. ^-^


    @Aladdin, don't forget the random switch for the broadcast. ;)

    @Zom are you sure the "random" is really random?
    What about to rotate a sequence every day? If you have 6 different tracks, you could rotate them every day. For example:
    Monday 123456
    Tuesday 234561
    Wednesday 345612
    etc..

    You'll have to ask Aladdin @rupsil. He is the guy behind the console and knows better than I how easy or impossible your request is. That said I was told that the Radionomy planer is a nightmare to use.

    Actually, this is the first time for me to listen to my voice. OMG. It is not quite the same voice that I expected it to be. LOL

    You did an amazing job @Scott. Welcome to the group. :)

    Is the Radionomy site another platform for listening the songs from EnglishRadio site @Zom?

    Better late than never @Elle. Don't forget to call your mum. ^-^ Me, I'll take her to Spain for a few days. It's mother's day at the end of the month in France.
