Using Skype to talk with native speakers

In Enseñaza on 8 January 2010 at 18:28

On Monday, we will be trying the services provided by Dickenson College to communicate with native Spanish speakers via Skype. This is a first for me and I’m sure it will be a little chaotic. Crossing my fingers and I’ll let you know how it goes. We will have basic questions prepared and the students will talk for twenty minutes in Spanish and twenty minutes in English.

For those of you interested in trying this yourself, create an account at http://www.language-exchanges.org/, also known as “The Mixxer”. This is a terrific service that thousands of language learners around the world can take advantage of.
