Microsoft recently showcased a new Skype feature that allows for real-time, two-way, voice translation! This feature will make the Skype Cultural Exchange even more extensible and will allow those who use Skype for non-native language acquisition to have in-depth conversations, in their own languages, about their progress and issues in their learning.

When you ask people to define ‘Critical Thinking’, there is no shortage of definitions. In a recent online webinar for English Language Teachers, the lecturer started the webinar by asking participants to share their own definition of the term, Critical Thinking.
