Flipping cards Medical professions

Here’s another flipping card quiz, but this time with audio files so you can hear how to pronounce each word.

Two things I’d like to mention. One is that there are other ways to pronounce many of these word depending on where the English is spoken, but basically I’m sticking to my mother tongue, which is Brit English. Two, there’s a bit of white noise in some of the audios, but I don’t know how to remove this yet, because I’ve just started using the programme and it looks a bit like an aircraft control panel (all full of knobs and buttons).

Anyway, I’m really pleased about being able to upload audios and listen to them getting over the shame one feels when hearing their own voice.
