Just another Around The World with 80 Schools weblog

We had a great English lesson with some very-very clever and nice and cute students from Lurgan, USA.
This time one side chose a world, the other class had to ask questiosn, and the class which picked up a word could answer only: yes, no, sometimes. Finally, we and they had to find out the word.
Thank you very much for the meeting!!
Here is the video of the meeting

Very nice students from Lurgan, USA read us a cute story about a little mouse. It’s a great help in our language learning, we are going to listen to the story next week in the lessons.
Next we were acting some words from the story and the kids from the other side found them out.
Thank you very-very much for the great meeting!

Our first skype call this year was on 24th September .
We were talking to students from New York.
Thank you very much !!! It was excellent!
My kids could learn a lot from it. We recorded, and watched it several times in the lessons to practise the living language.
These skypecall gives my kids a great motivation .

I am Gyöngyi from Hungary. I teach little kids age 7-14. They learn English as the second language.  This school year  (2009-2010)we had two skype calls with kids from Lewisberry and Wellford. Many many thank for them, because my kids enjoyed these meetings very much. Their teachers helped me a lot, so despite of the language difficulties these calls were great!!!! So, from September I would like to make more skype calls to motivate my student to learn English.
