There are nine sections of people talking about stuttering on this site. You will need a computer with a fast connection to listen. If you go to the computer lab, you may need to bring earphones. You can also listen in our student workroom. Do not listen on a computer where your internet connection is through a modem (telephone). It will take too long to download the samples. You report should be one page, single spaced.
