Project Main Details

Actor for language learning dialogs 

We're recording about 90 short dialogs for a language learning app. We're looking for actors, not "radio announcer" voices.

Our main criterion is interpretation. The conversations range from normal to dramatic to zany. We're looking for actors who can bring the scripts to life in an authentic way. What works best for us is to sound natural and generally upbeat.


1. Perform EXACTLY as written. No word changes, additions, or omissions.

2. No added sound effects (laughs or other non-vocal sounds) -- express emotion through what's written.

3. There must be a slight pause after EVERY sentence. (We edit each sentence into a separate file. If we can't separate them, it has to be done over.)

4. The audience is native English speakers, so speak naturally. But this is a professional, learning app, so speech should still be clear and well-articulated, without mannerisms such as dropping final g's (walkin', talking'), etc.

5. Acting and emotion: bring the scripts to life, but don't overact. If a script is just a normal conversation, just be normal. Be especially careful with negative emotions (such as anger or sadness) -- not too extreme; keep it upbeat -- most scripts are comic, not tragic.
