Skype with Korea

It was Monday night at 8:20 pm for the students in Pennsylvania but it was 9:20 am on Tuesday for the students in Korea when we Skyped this week. My students were back on campus for a Spring concert and Art Fair so it was the perfect opportunity to meet Mr. Corben’s Year 5 (4th grade) class from the Seoul British Forgeign School in South Korea. I had a packed house since many parents and siblings decided to watch to see what our Skypes are all about. Mr. Corben started off by putting the webcam up to the window to give us a view of the city and their elevated playground. He then asked each student to introduce themselves and tell what country they are from. After my class did some introductions, the children asked questions about sports, subjects, favorite games, famous places in our area, etc. We ended the call with the Koren students saying goodbye in the many languages that they speak. It was an a wonderful experience for us. I am not sure who was more excited, the students or their parents!
