To access these recordings and to listen to them over your Internet connection, just click on the Audio Recordings button on the Kal’s Korner Online Home Page and you’ll be taken to the Audio Recordings section where you can make your selections.
Listening to History
On the Audio Recordings Home Page, a series of icons are visible which show each historical figure and their collection of recordings.
To start listening, just click on them. After selecting your choice, you will notice that for some audio content, the actual words or transcripts of the recordings you can listen to are also provided. This is done in order to help you, in case you have a hard time understanding what is being spoken due either to the vocabulary that is being used, or perhaps the person’s accent.
For example, President John F. Kennedy sounds very different than President Franklin Roosevelt.
More than Just Words
In addition to the actual written words or transcripts that you can print out for studying or reference, when accessing these audio recordings you will notice one other very nice feature.
As the recording is playing, the words which are being spoken at the moment will actually change color from white to yellow, making it very easy for you to follow visually what is being said.
For a real example of this, see the photo on the right, shown above.
Notice that the words being said by President John F. Kennedy turn yellow as they are being spoken.
Jokes: Amazing Parking Signs
You are American. We saw this sign and took a photo of it in New York. However, it seems to me that there are two things wrong with it: 1) it is too POLITE for being from New York, 2) it seems like this is BRITISH English and we know that you Americans don’t do British English unless you live in Beverly Hills.
Can you tell us if this sign is real?"
A: You are correct, this is obviously NOT a "native" New Yorker’s sign, otherwise it would end with the phrase: "What, you got a ‘problem’ with that?"
Also, this is certainly British English. If it were AMERICAN English, the sign would read: "...spray painted with the words ‘freedom’, -- sent to Iraq, and then held in Guantanimo, Cuba, for promoting terrorism."
