I have been contacted by the Christian Science Monitor about a story they want to do on using Skype in the language classroom. They need to know that this is not a passing fad and that many US colleges/universities/highschools are using this tool for meaningful classroom exchanges.
Of particular interest to the CSM is the idea of people in the US using Skype to connect from remote parts of the country, where, perhaps, language instruction in a less commonly taught language might not be possible or affordable.
Do you have a story to tell the CSM about using Skype in the L2 classroom? If so, leave a comment and tell it here!
