The recording was made on 4 June 2011, in a lecturer's office at the University of Brunei Darussalam (UBD). The Bruneian (S1) interviewed a diplomat from Laos (S2) about his experiences in Brunei, the food he likes to eat, his family and his hobbies.

After the interview, S1 listened to the recording and noted down what she had not understood. In most cases, it was only apparent that she had misunderstood something from this reflection, as the interview generally proceeded without interruption.

We are grateful for the help given by S2, in agreeing to the interview and then in being willing subsequently to come and help explain what he actually said.
