auIf you’re under 25, let me explain the above image to you.  It’s called an audiocassette, and people used to listen to music on them.  Before mp3s.  Before CDs.

Anyway, last week at school, we went down to the audio lab to listen to some Hebrew dialogues and write down answers to questions based on what we listened to.

It was like being in the Dharma Initiative circa 1977 – these cassettes must have been played and stopped and paused over & over again since that time; they were all crackly and retro.  Plus, the quizzes after were difficult for me.  I guess I learn better from live interaction in the classroom or visually using the computers.  Audio…not so much.
