Exploring sound- audio interviews and chat

To make the interviews we:

  • learnt about closed questions and open questions
  • tried a speaking and listening exercise where we worked in pairs so that one person spoke for 2 minutes about their favourite Commmonwealth Games related moment, then the other person tried to tell that story back again without forgetting any details (then we swapped over)
  • wrote down open questions to ask our partner
  • tried to record an interview in one go

We used the Easi- Speak microphone recorders to record our work.

Our microphone recorders, which have buttons to record, pause and play, then plug into a PC
