Two-Tone CDs, English-Arabic


Two-Tone CDs, English-Arabic

This stereo  Two-Tone CD contains both source material for you to practice  interpreting and a model interpretation of that same material  by an expert interpreter.  The source material is on the left channel  of the CD, and the interpretation is on the right channel.  Thus,  by using your stereo's balance control, you can hear only the  source, only the interpretation, or both.  If your stereo does not have a balance control,  you can use head phones or ear buds and listen to only one side at a time.

When you listen to the interpretation provided on the CD, not only  are your terminology questions about the passage answered, you also  gain valuable insights into the time lag, or décalage employed by an expert interpreter.
