At the end of my last post, I said I might have a go at recording a 12seconds.tv clip of me speaking Catalan.
I did try using 12seconds.tv – at school, it was blocked (not very surprised really!). Then I tried at home. Having been distracted by talking about my favourite concert ever for 12 seconds, I tried introducing myself in Catalan but found that 12 seconds wasn’t long enough. this was pleasing as it meant I had more to say than I thought ;o)
So I went back to Seesmic and, after countless attempts, I recorded and saved a version which I can just about accept. Why is it that you never sound as good as you do in your head when you talk? And the faces I pull – em sap greu – please forgive me!!
Any comments are more than welcome – but please be that ‘sympathetic native speaker’ that we’re always promising our pupils!
If you’re interested, check out Mark’s progress on his blog – he’s doing so much better than me – but I will not be intimidated!
En Mark es força més bon estudiant de ses llenguas que jo.
