Today Julianne did her first ever listening exam recording session . . . and I’m happy to say that it was a success in spite of a rough start.
We woke up at 6:30am, got ready, took a bus to the campus recording studio, unpacked the exam scripts, and then . . . sat . . . and sat . . . and waited . . . and waited as the techs had problem after problem after problem . . .
After 90 minutes we gave up and went home. We came back later in the day and the techs finally had gotten everything set up and ready for us.
Julianne was a fantastic partner. Previous recording partners I’ve had don’t seem to understand that moving papers during recording screws up the recording, and would forget or not pay attention enough to know it was their turn to speak during the dialogs for the test . . . Julianne was a pro!
I think we make a great team!
