Skyping with China

On Friday January 7, 2010, Ms. Wu and selected students from her Mandarin Chinese classes connected with students and teachers in Century School in China. Because there is a 13 hour time differential, it was 8:00 AM here in Connecticut, but in China, it was 9:00 PM. The Skype conference was possible because some of the students are residents at Century School. The students in China asked our students questions about how they celebrated the recent holidays, and our students had similar queries. The conference was very exciting and engaging for students in both countries, and they look forward to many more sessions of sharing. This was the second successful conference that Ms. Wu has moderated. The world is indeed flat, and these conferences are just the beginning.
