Please note: Due to circumstances beyond the control of CFI-UK, the sound level on all four recordings are lower than we would have wished. We have done our best to boost the volume, but nevertheless need to advise you that there are moments when both speakers lower their voices to the point where it may be difficult to hear what they are saying. We sincerely apologise, in advance, for any difficulty this may cause to the listener.
