    If I were a native speaker of English, I would never shut up. :-)

    My browser won't open any of those files. It would have been fun. Sorry!

    If you have Youtubes you can share, that would work.

    Try this folder containing all the files (I added it to the initial post, too):
    https://drive.google.com/folderview?...UU&usp=sharing

    I still can't open them. I'm using Firefox on Ubuntu Linux.

    Thank you, Rover_KE, I made better links for others.
    Why does the first native speaker say "There are five members TO our family?" In another thread I started today I have been told it's a mistake. Do you also think so?

    P.S. I want to include this recording in a textbook (with audio), but if it's a mistake, I am not sure if I should. Is it a bad mistake?

    It's a mistake. People make mistakes.
