I thought i would open a thread to ask for suggestions of how people think skype practices could be used in what they think is a useful way. Yes practice is practice and very useful if i am to progress but do people think there is a format that would make the experience better.
Do people want to practice previous lesson material.
Do people want to practice current lesson material.
would people like to practice current lesson material but including a few words they wish to learn.
(basically, putting some new words into sentences they already know (in which case each person taking part would need to know in advance the new words).
One idea, are images useful, that is if i put a picture of a tree on screen with (branch, trunk, leaves etc labeled) would this give a subject to talk about. The image could be anything people like, a summers beach for instance.
Another question is, do people like the idea of one to one conversation or would they like to be in a group practice.
It seems by the end of course 2 people often start to read welsh (even if its just a dictionary) so as its possible to talk and text at the same time on skype, do people think that is useful to see the words they may have trouble hearing (one thing with this is that it is possible to click on skype and find previous sessions text (misspellings and all).
The long dark evenings are here so lets make good use of them.
all comments gratefully received.
