  Will

Уилл: Speaking with the Russian students really helped me work on my accent.

  Tanya

 Таня: Speaking with native speakers on Skype is a wonderful opportunity to improve one’s speaking abilities.

  Andrei

Андрей: Skyping with a native speaking Russian, who barely speaks English, got me out my comfort zone. This helped because it forced me to have a conversation in Russian only. This is a great way to learn Russian!

 Саша: I really enjoyed speaking Russian with a native – the opportunity had me thinking in Russian in a way I had not before. I had to be on my toes, trying to communicate what I wanted to say.
