Grading Update

J

Lit, grades submitted on-line. J-Lit exam consists of essays so it takes longer–if you were wondering… Well, that and procrastinating… One down, three to go.

Update:

New Christmas song–“We Are” by Do As Infinity. I don’t know get the name of the group either. A student of mine in Japan sent it to me, telling me its one of the songs playing in Japan for Christmas? Well, she likes this group especially. Anyway, I heard it and thought it was pretty good and wanted to share it with those of you who don’t get the opportunity to here J songs very often. Lyrics to come later… after grading… GRRRRrrrrrrRRRRrrrrRRrrr……………

Converting

I

know that there’s gotta be someone out there who can help me? I friend let borrow a disc with M4A audio files, but of course I can’t hear them without converting them… I think. (I use Windows XP.) It will play on Real Player but not on Windows Media Player or Winamp.

Does this mean that even if I burn them to a CD, it won’t play on normal cd players? If so, what do I need to do to convert them to WAV or MP3 formats? I presume I would need a conversion program. Any suggestions? This old non-tech old man would appreciate any help…

Oh yeah, I’m still grading…. hehehehhehehehee, really. I’m half way through Advanced Modern Japanese.
