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. Click on "TR-2 1/2: Start" and hear the coach start the drill. Close that start window.

  2. Play Item 01. The pc will say, "I think I must have been changed several times since then".

  3. Start recording. Give a half-ack, that encourages the pc to continue talking about the same topic.

  4. Close out the movie for Item 01, then listen to the recording you just made. Note to yourself whether it tends to continue the communication, or end the communciation.

  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, either "I gave an ack that ended cycle" or "I gave an ack that encouraged further communication.

  6. Note the "Good" or the "Flunk" of your student action. Close that movie.

  7. Handle the other items up to Item 20 in a similar manner.

  8. Do the above steps again if needed.
