Ever taken lessons for anything via skype?


#1

thinking of learning a new language and i really kind of hate skype but seems like it’s just the done thing now.

other skyping or language chat allowed


#2

I do my therapy over a non-unionised Mexican Skype equivalent. It’s fine. Pretty convenient.


#3

Gonna sign up for French lessons within the next week or so.


#4

via skype or non?


non is french for ‘no’

that sounds kind of odd, but then having done IRL therapy i could only hope it would make it marginally less awkward


#5

oui! via le skype!


#6

It was at first but it means I’m less likely to flake out because I’m too anxious to physically go.


#7

any language nerds @carmen able to weigh in on whether it’s a good idea or not?


#8

yeah exactly this, think i had more anxiety about that than anything else in life


#9

I have had lessons and I have used skype extensively. But never together.


#10

thank you for your input


#11

I have never used skype.

Nice little fact for you, there.


#12

I had to download the app for my new phone, it had a tutorial, I ignored it and then had to work out what the buttons all did.


#13

i do french chat over skype now and it’s good. the teacher is mega structured which helps a whole lot


#14

Where do you get lessons like these?


#15

#16

#17

more of a facetime man? i can’t imagine you on FB video chat in a month of sundays tbh


#18

I’m thinking of signing up to spanish but face to face stuff.


#19

Never used any of them, tbh.


#20

if i attempted to FB video chat what would you do? let it ring out or immediately hit ‘no’ and then send abuse?
