I enjoy working on transcribing the lessons and I think it's a very worthwhile exercise. Trouble is it's very time consuming and so usually it presents itself as too big a task,onerous, daunting. I think this is likely the case for many Poddies who may also enjoy giving transcribing a go but know they won't have time to transcribe a whole lesson. I also know once or twice we have mentioned working together on a transcript but this has never been organised. I've had the idea of setting up a post in the transcripts with tal group [ you can join the group here:
] where I have created small 30 second time slots where anyone and everyone can post as little or as much of the transcribing of that 30second slot as they feel like in a 30second subthread. That way we can all join in and chip away at it. I'd encourage everyone from Newbie to Advanced to get involved. Even if a Newbie could identify a word, for example "da jia" [everyone] and put an exact time next to it then I think that would be good. It doesn't have to be correct [others can help correct ] and it doesn't have to be done sequentially...you can jump into any time slot you like with whatever you can come up with. It also doesn't matter how many jump in and work on the same time slot...doubling up is fine...you'll just confirm what others are hearing or show areas that may need focus on for clarification. The important thing is participation...the more the merrier. Come on poddies, join in and give it a shot. 加油吧！
The first Collaboration is on the Advanced Lesson 中国通 which is here:
