Friends from elsewhere

My class has taken advantage of the world wide web to make friends with people who do not live in their neighborhood.  Their state and even their country.We have made contact with 2 schools from different parts of the world.  We are sharing a wikispace with students from Grimmelshausen Gymnasium Gelnhausen, Germany, www.grimmels.de and we are Googlewaving and Skyping with students from a New York High School.Technology is great.  My kids are warming up to the idea of “talking” with others from around the world.  My English I classes are coupled with ESL or ELL classes.  I hope that they will feel empowered by their task of helping another student learn English.My fingers are crossed.
