Progressive Speaking and Communicative
The aim of the method was to improve the speaking skills taking part in regular skype conferences as well as to lower their fear and shyness while speaking English.
The 4 schools tested the speaking skills of 30 students – 15 who attended the skype conferences and 15 randomly selected from the school. The Czech Republic and Romania changed the students during the period tested and them four times. Each group was tested at the beginning and at the end of the school year.
Turkey and Bulgaria tested their students 3 times (at the beginning of the project – at the middle - at the end of the project) because they used the same students for 2 years.
After the assessment was completed in the 4 countries a clear tendency was shown: the students that took part in the skype conferences made better progress than the randomly selected ones.
