Tokbox: we meet on Saturdays on voice!! Come join us!
Hi everbody: I hope you have seen Carlos's splendid offer.
this was asked:
By the way, is there a communicator that allows more than 2 people to have a conversation?
Skype allows this, but anyway, we often meet on Saturdays, around 11pm local time (Spain) on our chat and then go to a tokbox. This is a free internet service. It allows camera, some people even connect the cam!! and it allows groups.
Why not join us? Sometimes the sound is not wonderful , but who cares, jeje, we speak both English and Spanish. You don't dare speak yet? Well, just tune in and listen !!There is a written chat on the same page so some people don't talk but we converse with them anyway and they take part in the fun
Ok, I hope you will join us
Ok, so we did meet, we spoke :
Heidita, Pepito, samdie, Markbaker, Valerie.
Two Spanish natives on voice!
Justy saying...come along and join us next week
Thanks for that link, cheesieyumyum. So according to the GMT Chart
- Spain is +1 GMT
- Chicago is -6 GMT
So thats 7 hours difference = +1 - (-6)
Heres GMT conversions for America:
- EST -5 Eastern Standard Time (New York, Toronto)
- CST -6 Central (Chicago, Texas, Wisconsin, Mexico - Dist Federal)
- MST -7 Mountain Standard Time (Denver, Las Vegas..i think)
- PST -8 Pacific Standard Time (Los Angeles, San Fransicso, Seatle, Vancouver, San Diego)
- AST -3 Argentina (DST not observed)
- CLST -3 Chile (currently on DST)
Please note that Northern Hemisphere of the globe is not currently on Daylight Savings Time, while Southern is. Argentina decided not to go on it this year....for some reason....
UGH...I really need to participate, but that's when I'm getting ready and going to work.
Participé tarde. Continuaban charlando a las once (EST) cuando me fué. Me gustó muchísimo. Todo el mundo fueron bien simpáticos.
I joined late. They were still chatting at 11 eastern when I left. I loved it. Everyone was super nice.
Suena genial chicos. Estoy muy nerviosa cuando hablarando español en voz alta pero trataré escuchar en el Sabado proxima.
(Sounds great. I am very nervous when speaking Spanish out lout but I will try and listen-in next Saturday.)
[I've just had look - 11pm Saturday will be around 9am Sunday here ...not a bad time - no excuses to be had there......)
You missed it!!
I talked with Goyo, yupeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!
Come join us, we are talking on voice!!
Goyo is here!!!!!
Cheese, did you understand me? I hope so, normally we are not so many people there, then it is easier to talk .
Come join us again
Acabo de cambiar y olvidé mi webcam Ya viene por el correo, pues intento juntarme con todos el próximo fín.
Llegué algo tarde hoy (13 Feb.), pero tuve el placer de conversar con Samdie (al comienzo no sabía que era el filólogo) y Valerie especialmente. También estaba Eddy aunque supongo que con algo de sueño por la hora.
Espero, llegar más temprano la próxima semana poder encontrarme con los demás participantes.
Con Calvo no alcanzamos a conversar en esta oportunidad, aunque si ya lo hemos hecho anteriormente por Skype.
Encontré muy cómoda la sala de Chat, además que otorga la facilidad de juntar a bastantes personas al mismo tiempo.
See you next time.
This sounds cool but I don't think I can log on...... WWWWAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Thanks guys. It is a fantastic opportunity for all of us here in the forum who can access the technology. I had fun and I will definitely participate again whenever it's possible.
Oh, and the "reminder" which came through on my email was such a good idea. (I think because I had ticked "follow this question".
That was exciting! Hard to tell whos saying what, but fun nonetheless!
I don't know if we are talking, but do have a look, if we are, I am not connected yet, we meet on the chat, so come and join us there and then we will see
Bueno, es el sábado... nos vemos en diez minutos, ¿Verdad?
Okay, it´s Saturday. See everybody in ten minutes?
