Primer Submission Page

Sound System Primer: Submission Page

Now that you are familiar with all the basic sounds of Spanish, it is time to test how well you can hear and reproduce these sounds.  At then end of every lesson of this program, you will submit a recording to a dropbox on the webisite, Soundcloud, and I will provide you with feedback on your pronunciation.

When recording, you can either record directly to the Soundcloud dropbox or record on your own computer and upload it to the dropbox.  Once you have finished recording, name the file: Sound Primer, (Your Full Name) (e.g. “Sound Primer, John Doe”).
