Note: I flubbed sentences 19, 24, and 35 slightly on the first try. To correct this, I repeated the sentence number and a proper example of the sentence immediately after the try that contains an error. My presumption is that you will be splitting these apart with an audio editor (Audacity is my favorite), so I expect that you can just eliminate the mispronounced sentences at that point.
