Flash Meeting Finland
Students in the fifth grade took part in this activity. They communicated in English with same age students and they improved their conversational skills. They talked about their interests and hobbies, the similarities and differences in their school life, learning environment and in life all together.
This helped them broaden their cultural horizons and realize that they have more in common than they have differences. They exchanged information in real time such as weather conditions and they showed their favorite books and their classrooms. Each Skype conference was a unique educational experience for the students because they had to step out the comfort of English class and use their skills in a real life circumstance.
