Saturday night chat: Who will be there? We must make two groups!
As you could see the technical problems are getting too big as the group is growing.
I have already talked with Ruben and Ismael who are willing and happy to take over a group. But the group has to be divided.
I can take with Meli the beginners, we must speak half an hour in Spanish and half an hour in English, for Meli's sake. Or we can chime in some questions for her in English, please speak slowly.
Meli is progressing really well thanks to all your help and her consistency, always a main factor in learning
We need to know who will be there this next Saturday, I would like to divide the group before we start if not it will be a mess.
Please let me know if you can make it and will be there
I finally got on for a change. I am usually not inside during daylight hours. I was placed in the beginners group with Marianne, Meli, Poetisa and 2 other people (sorry I am blanking)
It was low key and fun. No fear to make mistakes.You just have to start making them and the process brings you to a new level of error.( for me anyway.) It was fun to hear Meli go from theoretical pronunciation of a word she had read to nearly perfect pronunciation in only a few tries.
I am such a low level of hearing and speaking comprehension I am hoping we can exchange prepared questions before we meet again.Then I will be able to compose the first phase of the answere at least instead of sitting there in dumb silence trying to recall the simplest word.
I enjoyed the Saturday Skype session, after we finally stopped the frequent disconnects.
I will try to be there, but I really don't know for sure until I get closer to Saturday, because of the type of business I have.
Hopefully you would be able to keep a spot open for me, but unfortunately, at this time, I just don't know how next weekend will be shaping up with my computer business.
I would love to be there , I think you are a champion to keep it going so well Heidi, for me last Saturday was a roaring success even though I did not manage to string more than one and a half words together , i promise to do better if you give another try , the question and answer was sooo good ,may I go in the dummy- division please, thank you.
Count me in!!! I may not say much but I think I'm learning quite a bit from it. Thanks Heidi!!
I enjoyed this Saturday very much. Thank you Heidita for having these chats.They must take a lot of planning. I would like to come again this week. If I cannot, I will let you know as soon as possible. Also, when we see that there is a chat going on, can we join it, or do we need to be assigned? I did read the rules, but I was not sure if a person could just jump in anywhere (maybe I should just stick to beginner chat) Thanks,
I made it to the chat this weekend, but I didn't have a headset so I had to just listen. I did get a headset later in the night though so I'm good for next time.
As always I'll be there .
I would love to try this. Saturday at 6 pm eastern time, correct? How should I send my skype address?
I am glad so many newbies to the chat are coming again. Rikko was sooooo shy at first, and then , secret!!, he was there like for 8 hours! lol
Annie and Dee, congratulations on your questions and answers! You were by far the best on the chat the other day, lots of initiative and lots of questions asked and correctly answered.
I would like to remind everybody again:
I'm in! Looking forward to it!!!
It was really fun, but also a rather unusual experience for me altogether last Saturday (early Sunday morning here). I would like to try again this Saturday and hope for a more "normal" experience.
Next Saturday looks good for me. I would like to try again. It was great before the internet went down.
I still want to be included in the Saturday chat.
I had a few problems with my "sound" but the "chat" is always great fun.
And 10/10 for having a "question list" - it gave us a starting point - well done. So definitely put me into the beginner's group - to help Meli will be a privelege :o
So, my Skype name is...
I'd like to join the beginners group, do I just PM you my Skype ID?
Also what time, Eastern Time Zone?
