What is Skype?
Skype is like making a phone and video call. Even better, but without the phone. You can hear and see your conversation partner as in real life.
Skype calls are free of charge. Countries and distances no longer play a role. All you need is a computer with Internet access and you can talk to all Skype users anywhere in the world for free. Skype also works on smartphones and tablets. There are no limits to communication, whether you are at home, in the hotel, in the office or on the road.

Functions in the classroom
You can see and hear your teacher while teaching takes place via Skype.
When being taught with Skype, you can see and hear your teacher just as in a normal classroom. You can listen to his/ her pronunciation and listen to his/ her gestures and facial expressions. Skype has a blackboard! In Skype chat, at the bottom of the page, your teacher can write down difficult words and send them to you in a flash. If you want to know if you have written something correctly, simply send the sentence or the word to your private teacher. Of course, you can also send links or attachments via Skype – just like any email client.
Skype for teaching can be downloaded from the official Skype website.
