lilixbadgirl (15:07:05): no
apsarasb (15:07:07): we didn't do exercise 1
mmmarzio (15:07:10): (Nope is spelled with an "e" at the end)
marcofb65 (15:07:19): it's just that maybe they wanted to be over men
mmmarzio (15:07:33): OH you didn't do exercise 1 - Which ones did you do?
apsarasb (15:07:36): but they deserve equalyty
apsarasb (15:07:51): from exersice 3

mmmarzio (15:09:13): You have the past and the prersent perfect
lilixbadgirl (15:09:22): yes
mmmarzio (15:09:29): What is special about the present perfect?
mmmarzio (15:09:34): Example =
maricarmen_santoro (15:09:34): yes
mmmarzio (15:09:45): Example from the video, anyone??
lilixbadgirl (15:09:55): I have been there once in my life
marcofb65 (15:10:03): I really think we already know the tenses. allthought it is a good way to practice
lilixbadgirl (15:10:06): ahhhh from the video... let me remember
apsarasb (15:10:17): when she says what she did yesterday
mmmarzio (15:10:36): Yesterday - is that a key word for the present perfect ?
marcofb65 (15:10:37): that's past
apsarasb (15:10:43): sorry
mmmarzio (15:10:44): Good Marco
apsarasb (15:10:50): 
mmmarzio (15:11:03): What's a key word you use with the present perfect?
apsarasb (15:11:17): the verb to have
marcofb65 (15:11:19): since, for, ...
lilixbadgirl (15:11:28): how long have you met? I think it was one of the questions from the intervierwer
mmmarzio (15:11:30): Right, both of you
marcofb65 (15:11:35): like when they said they've known each other for 4 years
lilixbadgirl (15:11:50): 
maricarmen_santoro (15:12:04): i have been study since 1986
mmmarzio (15:12:24): What is the difference between "Jim has known Robin for 4 years" and "Jim knew Robin 4 years ago?
maricarmen_santoro (15:12:28): it is an example
mmmarzio (15:12:43): OK MariaCarmen
mmmarzio (15:12:52): But there's a little mistake in your example
marcofb65 (15:12:55): the last one would mean he doesn't know her anymore
lilixbadgirl (15:12:56): the difference is that in the second sentence Robin is dead.. maybe...
krola979 (15:13:19): knew, is the past of know?
lilixbadgirl (15:13:20): o he didn't see her again
apsarasb (15:13:39): known

susannenyrop (15:41:46): They were relaxed and natural in the chat situation
mmmarzio (15:41:56): yes
dafne_gonzalez (15:42:02): yes, I they understood everything
susannenyrop (15:42:03): HOpefully the next group will be likewise this time
mmmarzio (15:42:21): with a little bit of luck
carolinalista (15:42:28): most of my students complained about the videos we use because they say they are defficult to understand and people talk very fast
mmmarzio (15:42:51): BRB (I am NOT smoking a cig)
dafne_gonzalez (15:42:53): we asked them questions about the video and they understood all the content
dafne_gonzalez (15:43:27): are reading my messages?
carolinalista (15:43:29): I just hope the machines will work properly at 11>30 and that the students will have a better attitude!!
carolinalista (15:43:34): than last time
susannenyrop (15:43:36): Yes, I think that their general level of understanding was high

susannenyrop (15:43:49): we read you, daf!!
dafne_gonzalez (15:43:58): ok 
susannenyrop (15:44:12):

dafne_gonzalez (15:44:40): very cooperative
susannenyrop (15:45:01): I think the chatlog will show how good they worked
dafne_gonzalez (15:45:31): Caro, I have already put the chatlog you sent me on the web page
susannenyrop (15:45:36): even though twenty minutes is not much for a good chat
dafne_gonzalez (15:45:49): no
dafne_gonzalez (15:46:12): I hope they complete the worksheets, and now they have to write the story
dafne_gonzalez (15:46:38): for next class, they can do that in pairs, Caro
dafne_gonzalez (15:48:09): are you there?

mmmarzio (15:48:37): I have to do lots if different things in this office
susannenyrop (15:48:45): brb
mmmarzio (15:49:08): I'm glad they're were no phone calls during the short chat with the students
dafne_gonzalez (15:49:21): I had a phone call
dafne_gonzalez (15:49:34): and many chat windowns popping up
dafne_gonzalez (15:49:42): windows
mmmarzio (15:49:47): I think I actually got them interested in a little grammar, Daf.
dafne_gonzalez (15:50:09): We talked about the content of the video, the story 
mmmarzio (15:50:28): What WAS the story?
dafne_gonzalez (15:50:31): and the characters
dafne_gonzalez (15:50:41): that's what they have to write
dafne_gonzalez (15:50:48): the story of this couple
mmmarzio (15:51:06): I suppose you mean the content - yes - the story - what she did yesterday, etc
dafne_gonzalez (15:51:30): and what is unsaid in the video
susannenyrop (15:51:48): The intriguing story was - why they met, and did want to tell us
dafne_gonzalez (15:51:49): how they met
dafne_gonzalez (15:52:04): if they are married or not
susannenyrop (15:52:06): that was triggering their imagination
mmmarzio (15:52:12): Yes - did anyone conjecture on how they met?
dafne_gonzalez (15:52:21): yes, there were some ideas
mmmarzio (15:52:29): My theory is that he's a divorce lawyer
dafne_gonzalez (15:52:30): including Sus and mine
mmmarzio (15:52:49): And he helped her get divorced
dafne_gonzalez (15:53:00): lol
susannenyrop (15:53:05): Oh yes, a divorce lawyer, and that's why they had to lie about when they met
dafne_gonzalez (15:53:36): he looks more like a divorcee than she does
mmmarzio (15:53:43): maybe!
susannenyrop (15:53:45): Daf suggested they met in a chat room
dafne_gonzalez (15:54:13): 
mmmarzio (15:54:20): Yeah, right - they didn't even jave chat rooms in 1992 when I filmed them
mmmarzio (15:54:32): chat rooms
mmmarzio (15:54:53): I avoid dating the videos
mmmarzio (15:55:08): It could have been filmed last week
dafne_gonzalez (15:55:13): right
susannenyrop (15:55:14): But they dod have MOO chat
susannenyrop (15:55:20): a
mmmarzio (15:55:41): moo chats in '92?
susannenyrop (15:55:48): only that they would not be the type you would expect to meet in the early days of MOO
mmmarzio (15:56:02): right
carolinalista (15:56:06): what is a MOO chat?
susannenyrop (15:56:07): oh yeah - much earlier that the WWW
mmmarzio (15:56:26): I still can't spell mysogyny
mmmarzio (15:56:29): misogyny
susannenyrop (15:58:05): MOO means Multiple Object Oriented -and that is an early version of chat
dafne_gonzalez (15:58:27): yes, that's a dificult word not only to write but to digest, too
susannenyrop (15:58:29): way back in 1972 were the first online role plays when the very first modems came up
dafne_gonzalez (15:58:40): misogyny
susannenyrop (15:58:48): how did students get that word, I could not hear it myself
dafne_gonzalez (15:58:58): they did
mmmarzio (15:59:03): Intensive listening
dafne_gonzalez (15:59:16): they got all the video, they understood everything
mmmarzio (15:59:30): yes, from my end too
susannenyrop (15:59:36): they're good listeners
mmmarzio (15:59:51): young ears hear better
mmmarzio (16:00:11): youing - relative to myself
dafne_gonzalez (16:00:37): that was easy for them, architectural videos are longer and with more complex language and content
dafne_gonzalez (16:01:21): kids for me 
mmmarzio (16:01:27): The architecture videos are obviously - probably - completely authentic - made for native speakers
dafne_gonzalez (16:01:31): they are younger than my son
susannenyrop (16:01:32): Mike, were you born a VERY long time ago?
dafne_gonzalez (16:01:40): lol
mmmarzio (16:02:02): 1946 he said stupidly like Jim
dafne_gonzalez (16:02:03): so I can be their mother
dafne_gonzalez (16:02:09): lol
dafne_gonzalez (16:02:21): you are my sister's age
susannenyrop (16:02:21): I just saw a snapshot of MY son, and thought he's getting old!
mmmarzio (16:02:34): Making up the questions for the interviewers was fun actually
dafne_gonzalez (16:02:43): oh no, she is from 1944
mmmarzio (16:02:49): My daughter is 36
susannenyrop (16:03:01): My son is near 30
dafne_gonzalez (16:03:07): my son is 27
mmmarzio (16:03:22): I giot married when I was 21 (the 1st time)
carolinalista (16:03:22): WOW!! my son is 14 and the little girl is almost 3 now
susannenyrop (16:03:30): and my daughter is 31!!
mmmarzio (16:03:37): You are a youngster, Caro.
dafne_gonzalez (16:03:45): she is a teen
susannenyrop (16:03:47): caro, you still have many years of parenting
carolinalista (16:03:54): not, not really, I got married at 20 the first time
mmmarzio (16:04:08): just like my ex, Caro
susannenyrop (16:04:44): me too (well, we actually never really married but lived together and had kids)
carolinalista (16:04:47): are you kidding me? I have been experiencing the satisfaction of raising a teenager
dafne_gonzalez (16:04:59): I married at 24 the first time
susannenyrop (16:05:09): 
mmmarzio (16:05:21): that's a reasonable age. What was his name?
susannenyrop (16:05:34): Teengaers are wonderful, but not always for their parents
carolinalista (16:05:42): i will be back ina few minutes, ok?
mmmarzio (16:05:48): me too
susannenyrop (16:06:14): I will need a break soon, before next class arrives
dafne_gonzalez (16:06:16): ok, so let's meet at 5:2o
mmmarzio (16:06:24): ok
susannenyrop (16:06:24): good idea!
dafne_gonzalez (16:06:44): ok, see you guys
dafne_gonzalez (16:07:01): let's hope it works as it did now
susannenyrop (16:07:33): Sure it will!
