Few years ago, I did something similar in high school. I enjoyed it a lot but it was for a short time. Thus, when I saw the opportunity to participate in this activity, I didn’t hesitate about it. We had the possibility to speak with the same person, in English and Spanish, for two months.
They are university students from Minnesota that are taking a course on History and Culture of Spain. For that reason, this experience has been perfect to practice for a language exchange with Flipgrid.
I have to admit that I was nervous about how the activity would be like. However, when I saw the first video of my partner on Flipgrid, I was very happy. We connected from the very first minute. And sometimes, we have talked a lot. For example, we have talked about our daily routine, history… And the most important thing we have talked about was our differences in culture, society and traditions.
We enjoyed the experience a lot. In fact, my partner on Flipgrid and I would like to keep in touch in other social media to be friends and to continue practicing our languages. I think that it’s fantastic and beautiful. Thanks to EOI, we have learned and practiced our English skills, and we have made special virtual friends.
In conclusion, if you are interested in something like that, I highly recommend it. Because
, it is good to know a little bit more about other languages and other ways to see the life.
