Skype is a quality VOIP (voice over internet protocol) audio and video provider. Using Skype, you can bring guests into your classroom and make learning "real"! No longer do EFL classrooms have to suffer from a lack of authentic language input.


With Skype, you get an ID to contact another person from computer to computer. You can either just use audio or both audio and video.  It is FREE when computer to computer!  You'll only need a headset/microphone to be able to use it. You'll have to download Skype the first time. This tutorial walks you through the process. Or try Teacher Training Videos for a visual view. If you have any problems setting up - reference the Skype User Guides.  Also, you can record yourself - try Powergramo - it's also free.
