How to record a monologue.

Apart from the oral practice you get in class, I would like you to record yourselves at home. You are going to record monologues and send it to my email address: pabloARROBAeoilorca.org

You can make the recording with a mobile phone. If not, you can use a computer. There are free computer programmes that you can download and use to record sounds. I reccommend a programme called Audacity: http://audacity.softonic.com/ You can find tutorials on youtube about how to download, install and record with Audacity: http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=audacity+tutorial&oq=audacity+tutorial&gs_l=youtube-reduced.12..0l4.20575.21909.0.68768.26.10.0.0.0.8.95.766.10.10.0…0.0…1ac.1.GpBkqba2opE

In each recording you will talk about one topic. Here is the list of topics you can speak about:

+Básico 1 (each recording should last from 1 to 3 minutes):

-Describe yourself: name, age, origin, occupation, hobbies, possessions, physical appearance.

-Describe another person (a relative, a friend…): name, age, origin, occupation, hobbies, possessions, physical appearance.

-Describe your family: mention the members in your family and describe one of them (name, age, origin, occupation, hobbies, possessions, phyisical appearance).

-Describe your daily routine.

+Básico 2 (each recording should last from 2 to 4 minutes):

-Describe yourself: physical appearance and personality.

-Describe another person: physical appearance and personality.

-Describe a picture.

-Your last holiday.

-Your plans for your next holiday.

-Housework: What chores do you usually do? What do you like/love/hate/don’t mind doing?

Don’t forget to use connectors from The Golden Sheet of Connectors in your monologue.

+Intermedio 1(each recording should last from 3 to 6 minutes):

-Food and restaurants: *Eating habits.

                                      *What’s your favourite dish?

                                      *Is fast food killing the Mediterranean diet?
