    Default "missing audio"

    Dear all,

    I translate an audio file and there is a certain word that can't hear. I really hope that you can help me know it.

    Here is the words that I can hear:
    "If I'm a choleric how this is tie in with be always being a leader and really enjoying being a dance instructor. and how this time with... if I'm a sanguine of me always beig in front of people talking and may be I do comedy on the side because I really enjoy ...[this is what I miss]..."


    enjoy [the aspep]
    enjoy [the aspec]
    enjoy [that astep]

    I really can't get that at all.
    Thanks in advance

    Looks like you've got all the phonemes, but didn't catch the consonant cluster - 'I really enjoy that aspect [of the life/role/business... - some implicit noun]'. But I can 't say I understand the whole piece.

    Thanks.
    Do you kindly have any idea about what this expression might mean:
    "in front of people talking and may be I do comedy on the side because I really enjoy that aspect"

    The problematic words here is:
    "comedy" does it mean "mock"?
    "on the side" does it mean "behind their back"?

    I'll be so grateful if you help me even guess it.

    Thanks a lot.

    I am not a teacher, but I like comedy, so I will try to answer your questions.

    "Do comedy" means to be a comedian, someone who tells jokes in front of an audience.

    "On the side" means this isn't his normal, full time job. It is something he does part time, or during the hours when he is not working at his normal job.

    That's a very intriguing text. What does being choleric have to do with dance instruction....? I'm curious!

    that's what I can't get, too.

    or may be I heard it wrong but it is the same sound and also suits the word "sanguine" as far as she's taking about temperament.

    I have a video splitter, and can split this minute drom the video and send it to you if you like. You, for sure, will get what she say at once.

    i'm really trying my best.

    Thanks a lot.

    Hi maiabulela

    With reference to "enjoy [that astep]", I assume what is meant is "enjoy that aspect".

    Does this make reasonable sense in your context?

    Best regards
    R21

    PS Some further thoughts:

    "If I'm a clerk, how does this tie in with me always being a leader and really enjoying being a dance instructor - and how does this tie in with if I'm anxious of me always being in front of people talking - and may be I should do comedy on the side because I really enjoy that aspect."

    Does this make any more sense?
