Event:  Zoom Meeting – End of the Month Social

Presentation:  Kahoot! Quiz

Time:  Saturday, May 29, 5 pm BA time

What?   It’s not really hard at all — patience!!  You will be glad!!

A BAIN Downtown fun and interactive on-line quiz, hosted by Stephen & Philip (from UK and based in SoHo) as the quiz masters.  It will last 30-40 minutes with additional time for getting up and running on the game.

Before starting you must have access to a SMART cell phone or tablet and a lap top/notebook/MacBook.  Both need to have an active internet connection.  Explanation below.

The quiz will be a mixture of questions — general knowledge, current affairs, history, music, films and sports. And the answers be multiple choice, one word typed answers, or true/false. We will have a couple of sample questions at the beginning, to help us all get on board.

When?

Saturday, 29 May, at 5 pm Argentine time. Use the usual zoom link and password or email tonilin@aol.com and she will send them to you.

How?

The key thing to remember is that for this quiz, the quiz questions appear on your lap top/tablet and then you will enter your answers on a separate phone/ device.

To get started — first download and activate the free “Kahoot !” application on your phone/tablet (use either App Store for Apple or Google Play for Android devices). Please take a little time to do this a day or so before the meeting, so you have the time to deal with any technical glitches. Each person playing will need to download the Kahoot app onto their device. The app will ask you a few basic questions and ask you to create a username nickname – be creative!

Toni will be starting the BAIN zoom video conference in the normal way and you will then see the quiz questions appear as part of the BAIN zoom meeting, in exactly the normal way and then the BAIN May 2021 Quiz fun begins J

Questions – Feel free to contact Stephen on stephen_meechan_uk@hotmail.com

In 2012, Sharilyn took a leave of absence from her work to spend some time in Argentina, where she quickly fell in love with the culture and the challenges of doing business and making a difference within this complex society. After supporting the development of a CED tourism project in the mountains of Patagonia, she joined her Argentine business partner to develop socially and environmentally responsible luxury accommodation in Peninsula Valdés, Chubut, Argentina. Most recently, Sharilyn and another Argentine business associate have created ElementPatagonia, an initiative to help Argentine artisans reach broader markets.

Zoom Monthly Social — February 27 — Saturday at 5 pm Buenos Aires Time

 

Join BAIN Downtown for our unique time and day of the month end social. This month only, we are changing the time and day, in hopes that as many members as possible can participate in the discussion.

The program is also a first.  Below is a link to an old (35 years old) movie that many many Argentines consider a classic.  You will find it a bit dated but very Argentine.  It has English subtitles.  Since many of you are studying Spanish, it may serve many purposes.

Watch as little or as much as you want.  Come with thoughts to share.  Info to join the Zoom talk is the same as always.  I’ll send it to you if you email me a request, tonilin@aol.com
