Skype Language Learning

Have you ever used Skype for language learning? If yes, that is great! Congratulations, you have used one of the best tools for language learning. If no, you may want to consider about using it. Personally, Skype has been a magnificent tool. I use it every day to talk with my family and friends, or in other word, for international and domestic calls. It is FREE!

Then, why not use Skype to talk with native speakers and language learners to practice your target language? You can practice talking, listening, writing, reading, and more. I have been using Skype to practice Spanish and Esperanto, two languages that I am learning now. Skype enables me to connect with native speakers of Spanish and learners of Spanish as well as Esperanto speakers from around the world.

There are many language learning websites (such as Verbling, Livemocha, iTalki, Lernu, etc.) and social networking websites (Facebook, Interpals, Vkontakte, Draugiem, etc.) in the internet. These great websites give us easiness to know people from around the world. Find those with the same interest. Add them on Skype and start talking!

Apart from all of those amazing advantages that one can achieve, nobody can deny that the conversation topic may be quite boring. Therefore, how can you come up with a new interesting topic for your conversation? You can talk about language learning experience, travelling, or even the weather!

Finally, hope you enjoy your language learning.
