Thursday Night Chat -- Advanced Students -- New time
This is just a reminder that tomorrow (Thursday, July 15th) is our Advanced Chat group on Skype. We meet at 6 p.m. U.S. Eastern time, which is 12 a.m. Spain time.
We will have some general conversation and then some specific questions, which I send out in advance to all of the participating members so that no one is "put on the spot" with a surprise question.
Hope you can join us!
Please send me a PM with any questions or comments.
There is a advanced chat going on tomorrow night, Thursday, July 22, at 6 p.m. Eastern time (11 p.m. England time, 12 p.m. Spain time).
Here are some topics that we may discuss:
1) ¿Qué tipo de trabajo tendrías si el dinero no fuera importante?
2) ¿Sí pudieras hablar español con fluidez, como cambiaría tu vida?
3) ¿Qué piensas de esta frase? What we have done for ourselves alone dies with us; what we have done for others and the world remains and is immortal. -- Albert Pine
Is there a thread about how to set up skype? I know you download software but obviously you need some sort of device to work as the volume and to send speech.
Is there a recommended way of setting this up as I've never used it. Thanks
Thank you, everyone, for participating....it was an awesome night!!
We got to talk to Charlius, Goyo (Greg), Melipiru, Ismael, Beth (uubethw), Dillion (Socceryo), Eddy, Erik (Rockdown667), Melissa (Madden Sky), Samdi, and our favorite girl from Madrid, Heidita.
The "ni sí / ni no" game was really fun to get to know each other. Eddy was the best player and very crafty in his questions.
However, I think in next week's group we will have a current topic discussion to give our thoughts and opinions on something current (nothing too controversial) Of course, I'll forward the question(s) to the participants prior to the chat so that no one is surprised.
Again, thanks to everyone who participated and we'll see you next week.
I'm sorry that I couldn't make it last night Marianne (work commitments, you know) but I'm glad that it went well. One day I hope to join you.
Here's to your continued success
Go to Skype.com and download the program.
You'll need a headset that has a microphone and earphones to chat (they are very inexpensive and available everywhere).
Plug in your headset and wait for the call from your group leader. Click "answer" and you are connected to the group.
Tonight's chat is an hour earlier.... at 5 EST, 10 England time, and 11 Spain time.
Erik (Rockdown667) will be discussing the subjunctive with us, so please take a look at his thread here.
Tengo el interés para mañana, ¿está bien añadirme?
Marianne, please check your private messages. I've sent you my information so you can add me to the Skype group.
