    What are the words here in this listening clip?

    I am dictating from this clip. The three blanks which I am not sure about are as follows. May I ask a native teacher to help me to hear what they are.

    Thanks.

    The link doesn't work. It redirects to the login page. I suggest you try another site such as Vocaroo.

    Blanks:
    1- go askew.
    2- there's magic inside her.
    3- it reverberates.

    There are other words which you didn't pick up.

    And the first is plural- papers go askew.
