e-Learning tools for recording Streaming Audio


Audacity is a free, open source software for recording and editing sounds including steaming audio from online Arabic Radio and TV stations.

If you are learning Arabic, try recording yourself on digital-audio format to develop your fluency, then share it with your tutor and classmates .

For instance:

  • Record a spontaneous talk about yourself, your interests, your weekly routine etc…
  • Record your written assignments if you are studying a specialised topic (e.g. Midlle Eastern and Islamic studies)
  • Then replay it and critically analyse the recording
  • Preferably with the help of your peers or even your teacher, identify any mistakes in pronunciation, grammar, use of language, choice of vocabulary, etc…
  • Taking into account the corrections made, repeat the recording process and find out how to say what you wanted to say fluently and accurately.

To convert your audio files into MP3 format, you need to download an MP3 encoding software
