    "During the Fall 2009 my students from Spanish 318: Advanced Speaking and Listening, had the opportunity to have what I call a Virtual Language Exchange using Skype. They practice their oral skills in Spanish with native Spanish speaking students that want to practice their English. They met students from Mexico, Colombia, Argentina, Perú, Costa Rica, Spain and all over the world. It was an extraordinary beneficial experience not only in terms of the practice of the language but also as a cultural experience as well."
