Ok, fair enough.
My pronunciation isn't completely off, it would just be really obvious that I am pure Anglo. I've recorded it twice and the French doesn't come out naturally, you know? I hesitate through it which ruins the reading in my opinion. If anything I would throw the chapter back into the mix and move on to Chapter 9. I will let you know tonight after another go at it.
How does that sound?

Sounds fine to me.

You probably don't sound like a southern redneck hick butchering the French, but you need to be happy with it. :)

Section 13:

17:57
18:16

Two pauses that can be cut down a bit. The first one was about 5 seconds; the second one was shorter, and I wouldn't have mentioned it except for you needing to fix the longer one. :)

Hi Tricia,

So I am going to pass on Chapter 8 because of the French. There must be someone who will be better at French. I am working on Chapter 9.

PL OK!

Note in future recordings, that "row" (a fight, an uproar) is pronounced to rhyme with "cow". ;)
