    Transcript to Speakout

    Hello
    I really hope I can get some help in this thread or I will be redirected to another source. What I need is to edit my subtitles to Speakout Elementary Video Podcast Unit 8 Now (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Rg8KTrvBcM) . I've written them by myself. However, I'm not making any progress in terms of perceiving several phrases any more. I would be pleased to receive some ideas from native speakers. Thank you in advance. This is my transcript:

    Re: Transcript to Speakout

    Why do you need to edit these subtitles? Who is making you do it?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: Transcript to Speakout

    Nobody is actually making me but in order to maintain my English I watch this podcast. I also help learn English my husband and one more adult. I've been working out through all these videos from starter level. They don't include advanced vocabulary. On the other hand, the pace of speech, blending of the sounds and personal peculiarities occassionally make it difficult to understand the content. I don't always write the entire script but this episode turned out to be quite tricky. I guess partly because you need to know all this cultural background. Of course I'm aware it's much easier to listen to audio from textbooks. Yet I try to push myself a little bit out of my comfort zone.

    They don't look like subtitles to me. Instead, they look like snippets of conversation. And that is one really long paragraph.

    Say:

    I wrote them myself.

    (You wrote them without any help. Nobody else wrote them.)

    And:

    However, I'm not making any progress in terms of perceiving several phrases.

    Re: Transcript to Speakout

    If you follow the link in the initial post you'll find out that these are definitely snippets of conversations recorded by BBC journalists in London. The trouble is that I don't understand some of the words or phrases, which I indicated with my "?" and "____________".

    Re: Transcript to Speakout

    Good evening Alimdul.

    I hope the following is of some use.

    We probably go together, maybe once a fortnight.

    Often I go on a Wednesday because we get 'buy one get one free' cinema tickets, so I can take a friend with me.

    We enjoyed that a great deal. We've been to India a couple of times. We do a bit of travelling and we thought it was very realistic and brought back memories of India.

    The last film was a James Bond film, Quantum of Solace. It wasn't as good as the first version that this film was the sequel to, but it was still very good.

    I'd probably recommend the new Terminator movie. It's once again full of action. Very exciting.

    I like old films. I've a complete collection of John Wayne and Charlton Heston, and musicals. Anything that's quite happy or adventurous that takes me away from real life. Those are the ones to watch.

    I'd recommend The Graduate. I enjoyed that as a young man and growing up as well, and maybe it's a coming of age film.

    My favourite film is called Goldeneye. It's a James Bond film and I think the action scenes are just absolutely fantastic in it.

    John Wayne is my favourite actor.

    My favourite actor is the new James Bond, Daniel Craig. I think he's very good at showing emotions in his films.

    Re: Transcript to Speakout

    Is that a British English thing to use "I've" with the "have" in "I've" being the main verb?

    Re: Transcript to Speakout

    I suggest that you avoid the use of the word "actually". I recommend that you take it out of any sentence you see it in and only put it back in if you decide it is truly necessary.
