Top 10 Ways to Use Skype in Your Classroom

Practice foreign language skills

The best method for learning foreign language skills: practice, practice, practice! And while practicing with classmates and teachers is always useful, talking with a native speaker is an invaluable lesson in proper grammar, intonation, and vocabulary. Use Skype to speak with students in another country (perhaps your town has a "sister city"?); foreign students are probably just as eager to practice their English. (Note: Stay safe! Please use caution when contacting individuals or allowing students to contact them.)
