I would like to share a great experience with you about using skype to develop speaking skills. My students moved to another city and the only way to stick with our classes was by Skype. This is a great tool because my student and I speak in real time and he can even record a video and send me even if I'm not online. Furthermore, he can watch his own video before sending me to see whether his speech was precise !! Use it, it is very good.

Ulrike Grabe's curator insight, March 5, 2013 3:28 AM

The ten ways to use Skype (or Google+ Hangouts, for that matter) mentioned in the article are:

"1) Connect with international classrooms

2) Learn a musical instrument

3) Professional development

4) Meet with librarians

5) Guest lecturers

6) Practice interviews

7) Have mystery call!

8) Meet exchange students

9) Give students background tasks while Skyping

10) Parent teacher conferences"

...and may I add from own experience: allow a student, who has to stay at home with a broken leg, to follow or catch up on class.
