Seeking Female Swahili Speakers

I am seeking female native speakers of Swahili who live in the Massachusetts area, for a Swahili language recording project.

We make the Pimsleur programs, a unique way for people to learn to speak foreign languages. Click here for examples of the product.

Speakers will need to come to our studio in Concord (Mass.) about 8 times for recording sessions. The recording sessions last about 2.5 hours each. Depending on speakers' individual schedules, recording sessions will most likely be in the evening hours. The sessions will be taking place in August. Pay is $30 / hr. The MBTA commuter rail goes to Concord from North Station, Porter, and Waltham.

But first things first -- I welcome all qualified candidates for auditions. Auditions are here in Concord, last less than one hour, and are not paid. Any number of women may audition. After auditions are complete, we will choose one woman for the job. The audition is like a job interview for your voice where you simply read the Swahili script aloud and we record it for our judges. We choose the one with the best voice. (Auditions for male speakers are closed.)

Auditions are going on now.

Thank you kindly for your consideration.
