Pitch Down

Today I had an appointment for an online lesson. After walking briskly for exercise, I got ready to take the lesson on Skype as usual. My teacher, who is in her 20's, is so punctual and sincere that I trust in not only her teaching skills but also character.

I was waiting for her call on time, but there wasn't any call from her. I made sure my schedule and I didn't find anything wrong. Then, I remembered the com@uter bug that had annoyed me before.
At that time my friend and I saw online marks-green ones; nevertheless, we didn't manage to contact each other. We didn't hear the sound of calling. I tired to log off and reboot, then finally the connection was made.
My computer is somewhat old type, so that kind of trouble occasionally happens. What's worse, its processing speed is terribly slow....

Anyway, I tried to log off and reboot my PC right away. I knew it would take some time and make her wait, but it couldn't be helped.
At last I received her call. (Incidentally, she actually tried to call me many times. I found her calls on its text board.)
Unluckily there were only three minutes left...> <; It wasn't enough to discuss or read the article she had sent me. As such I asked her to evaluate my current skills and give some advice.

She told me that I have a rich vocabulary and am familiar with reading articles. However, I have a prepensity to read some senteces in a monotonous and high-pitched voice.
As she pointed out, I'm liable to do that when I'm excited or something like that. She suggested I lower the pitch a little bit.

I asked her to teach how to read perfectly like a news anchor. Luckily she was willing to take on my request.^^ I have to practice and practice! hehe
