Page 2 of 4: Drill 2

Here you will be making and reviewing short recordings of your voice. Refer back to the instructions page if you need to. It is a waste of time to try and do this drill here without a microphone.

  1. Play Drill 2. The pc will again say, "Stop this moment I tell you".

  2. Start recording. Give a half-acknowledgement that doesn't in the least end the cycle of communication. Maybe "yeah...?" in a tone of voice expressing "Tell me more" (but don't say those words, just a soft "yeah" or similar).

  3. Listen to the recording you just made. Note to yourself that it does not end the cycle of communication but encourages the speaker to say more.

  4. Close out the movie for Drill 2.

  5. After listening to the recording you just made, click the option under "My student/auditor actions" that best describes what you just heard in your recording, in this case, "I gave an ack that continued the communication".

  6. Note the validation of your student action. Close the "Good" movie.

  7. Repeat the above steps if needed.
