Hi, I came to this site because I needed the help of English speakers for my project.
When I search online, I can't really find many resources for Japanese people to learn English. I am learning Japanese and I'm trying to help my Japanese friend (and hopefully others) to learn English. He has very scarce free time while commuting to his Web Design job in Tokyo. Most Japanese people are really really busy so they don’t have time to study.
I used a very nice Anki flash cards deck I had used in the past. It has words, example sentences, pictures, and audio. I had to make many changes to it so that Japanese students of English can use it. I can do everything other than the audio recordings for the vocabulary and sentences. I even did that but its not good enough at all.
What I need is an American English speaker to read these and record the audio. I will then remove background noise, cut the audio, insert the audio clips in the Anki deck, and upload it to the Shared Decks library (with proper TAGS and Description) so that everyone can find and use it.
Its free, and I will credit you in the description as well.
p.s. I split the list into two parts. This is Part 2 of 2
If you decide to record this then please strike two pens or pencils together after you finish reading each line. This should really help me cut the audio while editing.
Also, try to really pronounce words and don't speak fast. Most of these people don't have enough listening practice, they will stop learning if they don't understand the audio.
