SKYPE TAIPEI - LA BASTIDA (report by Maria F.)


Today (Friday, March 31) we had our second skype session with Taipei.
The call was great. This time it didn't cost us as much as the first time. We didn't have to prepare as much as the first time, but we had to memorize the answers to their questions. Taipei people have also been doing the hard work for this call, not like the other school.
We were able to answer most of the questions, although they didn't answer all the questions, it was not their fault, it was for the time.
I think this time we did the same thing in front of the camera (except some). Some talked a lot and others didn't speak. But it was still a success.
The connection was a little bad, and that's why we didn't understand what they said, but the best thing is that they had a PowerPoint of the things they were saying and so it was easier to understand.
We gave them Cacaolat the typical drink from here and we sang a song by Cargol treu banya, and they also sang us a song in Chinese, that we didn't understand much, but it was very funny, and I guess they didn't understand us much either.
But overall everything was excellent, we have greatly improved our English.
And we want to keep making more video calls. And having lots of fun, and that's what matters.
