Hello! Thank you for your article. I’d like to try to compare it to my previous experience of learning German lessons through Skype on online classes for free. I did around 10 conversations over Skype with a native speaker from http://preply.com/en/german-by-skype And I was pretty satisfied with their Quality. I think they have a strong teaching quality,They teach in a way any kid will easily understood.Following their course curriculum now I can speak German like a native , but I Want to try another option.

What part of the skype session did you enjoy the most? Languages @ Tile Hill Wood School

Slide 24

How do you think the skype session helped you with your learning of Spanish? I think it helped because miss made sure our pronunciation was correct and it was interesting hearing the Spanish students speak English. v It helped us know how fast the Spanish people speak and how they pronounce certain words. Because it boost my confidence in Spanish speaking. We listened to them and sort of understand and we improve our pronunciation. I think it helped because we got to listen to people talking at normal speed, which was actually quite hard to understand. Also, it helped us understand how to pronounce certain words.
