  • Hello. I’m an English teacher in Korea. I’m in a club class, and I’m dubbing after watching violence on school bullying and cyber bullying. So our students are recording their voices in Protect Yourself Rules-Cyber Bullying. Of course, I don’t plan to use recorded footage for commercial use. By the way, the voice of the voice actors put students’ voices, and the quality of the animation fell. So, can I get a sound file with only music recorded? My email is [email protected] naver.com Please send me a sound file by email. I will ask you.
