Get your students online practice with native speakers

As the university semester here in Korea winds down, my former colleague using the grammar message board told me that he’s had a great semester getting his students to interact with native speakers online.

Once again, I want to invite anyone to come use the forum, free. I hire native speakers to maintain conversations with anyone posting in the Tell us about yourself forum. We’ve seen some pretty good learning experiences:

Here’s one learner who got some good practice discussing music. Another learner shared some thoughts on Korean culture, specifically Parents’ Day in Korea. All in all, we just see lots of interesting exchanges develop. This is language learning, making it meaningful and having fun with it (do I sound like Krashen?).

Anyway, invite your studnets to come join the fun. I’ll make sure they have native speakers to speak with.

    Hi Mr James Trotta,

    My name is Juan and I just read about your grammar board. I am a native english speaker from the Dominican Republic (go figure) and I was wondering is you needed any more hands to write in the board?

    I am currently in Daegu, South Korea, visiting and doing some part time jobs. I could continue with this one even if I left Korea.

    Let me know if you need any help! Thanks.
