Have a real doll or teddy bear or something in front of you to be a terminal you can say things to. Don't just talk out into open space and imagine someone or something there.

  1. Since the student didn't acknowledge the line correctly in the prior drill, you will repeat it for him in Drill 3.

  2. Imagine some situation where it would be appropriate, and then say in as natural a tone as you can, "I'm sure those are not the right words".

  3. Click on Drill 3. You will hear the student say, "As you wish", in a manner that ends the communication cycle.

  4. Coach this wrongly. Pretend you weren't really paying attention, but were thinking of your spouse instead. Say aloud "Flunk! It didn't end cycle. Start!" and click on the "Student didn't get it/didn't end comm cycle--Flunk" link.

  5. Note the coaching grade, "Incorrect. You were thinking of your spouse instead of concentrating on the drill. Now pay attention and do it properly".

  6. No, you're right, these Robot TRs drills aren't _that_ clever. You will have to work with them to get through them properly and develop your auditing skills to the level you want.

  7. OK, no more tricks. Coach this drill wrongly. Say aloud "Flunk! It didn't end cycle. Start!" and click on the "Student didn't get it/didn't end comm cycle--Flunk" link.

  8. You will receive a coaching grade of "Incorrect". Close the window/movie.

  9. Do the drill again, coaching correctly this time.

  10. Repeat these steps until you're comfortable with this procedure.

  11. End off the drilling for now by saying aloud, "That's it".
