- Hi there everybody... I am a relatively new member to this group and have
been reading through all the excellent top tips - thanks, this group is
I have a question - recently I did a lesson with my group here in England
and they phoned out through Skype to a large commercial company as part of
their listening and speaking practice - the aim was to get detailed
information about mobile phones. We recorded the calls with Pamela and it
all worked a treat. The students loved (and hated!) the experience, but it
was incredibly valuable for analysis, both from a bottom-up and top-down
perspective. The simplest misunderstandings would send the conversations
off on a completely different tangent. It really opened the students eyes
when they listened again. My question is regarding privacy here - do you
think it is necessary for the students to tell the operator they are being
recorded? I guess this is both a legal question (but I understand the laws
will vary from country to country) but also a moral question.
I'd be interested to hear your thoughts.
