Audio Recordings: "Reading and Listening"

Do you have a READING HABIT? If you do, why don't you READ SOMETHING for our club members' LISTENING PLEASURE? It can be an interesting NEWS taken from a Newspaper, a SHORT STORY that you read recently or ANYTHING that you feel worth sharing. It will help you with your READING SKILL and PRONUNCIATION. The club members, meanwhile, can sharpen their LISTENING SKILL. This activity will definitely help both the SPEAKERS and LISTENERS with their English. This is a GOOD OPPORTUNITY that I don't want you to miss. Happy Speaking and Listening

  • It's always a pity that only a few people participate in such challenges as this.

    Some weeks ago, I read a book, and I recorded the first chapter of it.
    I hope you enjoy, and please, give me your opinion about my pronunciation.
    If someone wants to read that first chapter for a better understanding, just tell me and I am going to post it.

  • I would like to listen to all the voice recordings of the members here, but, unfortunately, I always get an error when I want to open them.
    Once, I was able to open SNR's recording...but only once...that was all. I feel sad because I can't listen to all your voice recordings.

    What can I do?

    By the way, as I read one of my blogs, I used a simple voice recorder.

    Maybe someone has the same problem as me.

    Here you go:

    Using this voice recorder is quite simple.

    • I am sorry, Mayumi, there seems something wrong with the site.

      Here is the link to my voice recording. I was recording my voice on my blog.

      https://storage.ning.com/topology/rest/1.0/file/get/3394281261?prof...

      It was early morning when I woke up in the middle of a beautiful flower meadow. Dew lay on the blades of grass and the blossoms of thousands of flowers. Where was I? How and when did I come here? I didn't remember.

      I got up and heard a sound coming from the distance. There, a man was standing, upright, proud, and quite handsome. He smiled and waved me as if he was waiting for me. I looked at him and wanted to go there, asking where I was and who he was, but with every single step I did, the distance did not shorten.

      His smile was enchanting and his eyes looked seducing. His mouth seemed to speak. I couldn't hear it but read from his lips."Come to me," he said again and again, "come in my arms."
      I tried to walk faster, but there was no chance of coming forward.

      Suddenly, I heard a beautiful melody."Dance to him," a voice whispered to me. "Dance!"

      Like a miracle, my feet began dancing, and I got fast forward. I danced with closed eyes. I dizzied from dancing and fell.
      Immediately, the music stopped, and the mysterious voice whispered: "this was your only chance, your only chance. You have missed it...you missed it!"

      "Your only chance...only chance...missed it...missed it," it echoed inside me.

      I opened my eyes. "Oh no," I screamed, "don't go, please, don't go!" He disappeared, slowly, very slowly, with sadness on his face into the fog, still reaching his waving hand to me. 
      "I'll come back once more," he said. 
      "When?", I asked, "when?"
      "I don't know," he answered, "one day. Just wait for me."
      He waved once more, then, he disappeared, completely.

    • Oh thank you, Rose. I didn't know it is on your blog.

      It was awesome narration and great writing. I didn't hear any hint that you're not a native English speaker. It was flawless and perfect!

    • Hi, Rose! I wonder whether you have installed the "Adobe Flash Player" in your computer. It's a FREE app that allows a computer to play SOUND FILES. Basically, it is pre-installed on Google Chrome of a computer. So, you need to check whether the Flash Player is ENABLED in your computer. If there's no Adobe Flash Player installed in your computer, you can download it from HERE. Please don't hesitate to ask me if you need any help.

    • Hi, Gabriel.

      I have the Adobe Flash Player. That is not that problem. 

      I will check why it doesn't work. My security system blocks it. I will  check what I can do.

      Thanks for your care.

    The Three Little Pigs

    By Roald Dahl

    The animal I really dig,
    Above all others is the pig.
    Pigs are noble. Pigs are clever,
    Pigs are courteous. However,
    Now and then, to break this rule,
    One meets a pig who is a fool.
    What, for example, would you say,
    If strolling through the woods one day,
    Right there in front of you you saw
    A pig who'd built his house of STRAW?

    The Wolf who saw it licked his lips,
    And said, 'That pig has had his chips.' 
    'Little pig, little pig, let me come in!'

    'No, no, by the hairs on my chinny-chin-chin!'
    'Then I'll huff and I'll puff and I'll blow your house in!'

    The little pig began to pray,
    But Wolfie blew his house away.
    He shouted, 'Bacon, pork, and ham!
    Oh, what a lucky Wolf I am!'
    And though he ate the pig quite fast,
    He carefully kept the tail till last.
    Wolf wandered on, a trifle bloated.
    Surprise, surprise, for soon he noted
    Another little house for pigs,
    And this one had been built of TWIGS!
    'Little pig, little pig, let me come in!'
    'No, no, by the hairs on my chinny-chin-chin!'
    'Then I'll huff and I'll puff and I'll blow your house in!'
    The Wolf said, 'Okay, here we go!'
    And then began to blow and blow.
    The little pig began to squeal.
    He cried, 'Oh Wolf, you've had one meal!
    Why can't we talk and make a deal?
    The Wolf replied, 'Not on your nelly!'
    And soon the pig was in his belly.
    'Two juicy little pigs!' Wolf cried,
    'But still, I am not satisfied!
    I know how full my tummy's bulging,
    But oh, how I adore indulging.'
    So creeping quietly as a mouse,
    The Wolf approached another house,
    A house which also had inside
    A little piggy trying to hide.

    But this one, piggy number three

    was bright and brainy as could be

    No straw for him, not twigs or sticks

    This one… had built his house of bricks
    'You'll not get me!' the Piggy cried.
    'I'll blow you down!' the Wolf replied.
    'You'll need,' Pig said, 'a lot of puff,
    And I don't think you've got enough.'
    Wolf huffed and puffed and blew and blew.
    The house stayed up as good as new. 
    'If I can't blow it down,' Wolf said,
    I'll have to blow it up instead.
    I'll come back in the dead of    night
    And blow it up with dynamite!'
    Pig cried, 'You brute! I might have known!'
    Then, picking up the telephone,
    He dialed as quickly as he could
    The number of red Riding Hood.

    'Hello,' she said. 'Who's speaking? Who?
    Oh, hello, Piggy, how d'you do?'
    Pig cried, 'I need your help, Miss Hood!
    Oh help me, please! D'you think you could?'
    'I'll try of course,' Miss Hood replied.
    'What's on your mind...?' 'A Wolf!'   Pig cried.
    'I know you've dealt with wolves before,
    And now I've got one at my door!'

    'My darling Pig,' she said, 'my sweet,
    That's something really up my street.
    I've just begun to wash my hair.
    But when it's dry, I'll be right there.'

    A short while later, through the wood,
    Came striding brave Miss Riding Hood.
    The Wolf stood there, his eyes ablaze,
    And yellowish, like mayonnaise.
    His teeth were sharp, his gums were raw,
    And spit was dripping from his jaw.
    Once more the maiden's eyelid flickers.
    She draws the pistol from her knickers.
    Once more she hits the vital spot,
    And kills him with a single shot.
    Pig, peeping through the window, stood and yelled,

    'Well done, Miss Riding Hood!'
    Ah, Piglet, you must never trust
    Young ladies from the upper crust.
    For now, Miss Riding Hood, one notes,
    Not only has two wolfskin coats,
    But when she goes from place to place,
    She has a PIGSKIN TRAVELING CASE.

    • Hi O.M.

      This is really great storytelling! You bring every character into life with your amazing voice. I enjoy it a lot.

    • My Dear Olgaaaaaaaa!

      Wooooowwwwww! One of the amazing recordings I have listened to so far. Fantastic, flawless and so pleasing to ears. I could sense you really enjoyed reading it thoroughly and I am sure listeners also did. Switching from high pitch to low pitch sound and vice versa is worth praising. Overall it was a great recording. You are a fluent reader.

      Would like to listen to more of your recordings. 

      :))))))))))
