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?
