Have anybody here tried to teach via skype? If yes, could you guys tell about your experience. Did you like it, what were the results, where did you find students?

Hi, we're teaching English via Skype now at Oxbridge. It's working quite well although it is more of a challenge for lower levels. One of the key things is to grade your language appropriately and try to keep readings short. We've developed a system that allows our teachers to display flashcards and images to Skype students which is really useful. It's a bit easier with some of the higher level students that are more fluent. Have you had much joy yet?
