A few tips about recording your message
(we hope they help!)
1. Please keep your message reasonably short - we recommend less than a minute, if at all possible.
2. Start with your first name and where you're from (just the town or organisation will do nicely).
3. Feel free to keep it friendly and chatty! Use everyday conversational English and talk naturally as if you're leaving an informal voicemail message.
4. Try not to speak too fast - take your time (especially when giving a phone number or other contact details). And if something doesn't come out as you would like, there's no need to call back and start again; instead just pause and say that bit again - as often as you like. We'll make sure it all sounds fine by the time anyone else hears your message.
5. You may want to talk about the same subject as someone else; and that's fine. But please avoid having a two-way conversation with another listener in public so that everyone is included in what you're saying.
6. Please be aware of background sounds that could interfere with your recording, like a TV or radio being on in the room or traffic noise outside an open window.
7. You must feel free to say what you want; for example, you might want to say how much you like a particular product or service - or you may want to say the opposite. But please be aware that others may not share your opinion and what suits one person may not be right for someone else.
