Tonight I was on the computer late at night, trying to get organized for my two days in Melbourne, when a foreign language popped up on my screen, from my skype window. However, the text was in English and my first name was used. I quickly realised that this must be my newly acquired friend from classroom20 who was looking for schools to videoconference with. It was Ekaterina Zhdanova from Russia. How exciting is that!
She had just bought a webcam and was testing it out. How fortunate that I was online.
We will be videoconferencing with her classes in the first week in December. English is their second language so we will need to be very patient. Their city has millions living in it and is close to the European border. However, the school only has 150 students. Her class is about to go to Prague for 10 days, to sit some exams.The audio of skype
only dropped a couple of times, otherwise all was crystal clear. The video was perfect.
Ekaterina, if you read this, we really look forward to working with you.
