First English lesson via Skype

Today we conducted our first English lesson via skype with our good friends from Russia whom we blogged about previously.

English class via skype. I'm wearing the sunglasses to block the bright computer screen!

The skype call went well and the English lesson lasted for 90 minutes and included some speaking, reading and writing exercises.

We are gathering ideas for the skype lessons so hopefully we'll come up with a whole English syllabus in the near future.

This sound like a great idea, not sure about the sunglasses lol.

You just reminded me to have a word with my piano teacher to see if she would be willing to do our lesson this way, online.

Of course it will be better once I move into my new house with fibre optics , the connection now while is not bad when using Skype has not been the best experience.

But great idea duncan go for it. and good luck.

regards John

Hi John,

The sunglasses were purely for blocking the glare of the computer screen - if I don't wear them I'll get a headache.

Thanks for your visit and encouragement!

If asked me, then this Skype English Lessons are really an excellent idea for individuals who actually feel hesitated in speaking English in front of all. For them, these 1-2-1 sessions are something like really good as in these sessions, without any hesitation, they can speak in front of their teacher with a feel that he or she will correct her in spite of laughing over him. I am also linking a website which specializes in offering these 1-2-1 English sessions over Skype.
