About Me
I have been teaching French and Spanish for about 8 years ( I was an English teacher in Valencia, Spain for 4 years) and continue to visit Europe frequently since I have family there.
Recently, my Spanish class had a brief SKYPE exchange with a school in Spain which proved to be very successful. I am interested in having my classes experience additional exchanges with other Spanish-speaking or francophone countries... Contact me soon if you are interested.

Hello,

I'd be delighted if we could organise a skype exchange between my students and yours. I have a group of 24 16-year-old students who could use skype to discuss with yours every Friday from 15.00 to 16.00 our time. If you are still interested in working with us, please tell me how you'd like to organise the exchange, as you seem to be more experienced than I am. 

Best regards,

Sarah

Hello,

Sorry for answering you so late: the last few days have been quite hectic what with the bank holidays and the election.

So we're still interested in working with you and your students. How about doing our first session on May 18? As for a training session, I'll be available on Monday 14 at 3.00 p.m. (our time) and Tuesday 15 at 5.00 p.m. (our time). 

Looking forward to working with you,

Best regards,

Sarah

P.S.: BTW, I've sent you a request to add you as a friend, so I guess communicating will be much easier as we'll be able to use our own email addresses.
