  • I'm going to share these with my teachers when we start pre-planning. One of the things I would like to try is a Skype conversation with an author. However, I can also see that it would be good for teachers of modern languages. We have exchange visits with schools in France and Spain and this way students could get to know each other in advance of the trip. I'm sure I will come up with lots of other uses. Thank you for getting me started!
