“Having a discussion in my second
language about something other
than how you’re doing or how your
day has been has actually allowed
me to learn new words in an authen-
tic context. This experience has
also given me the opportunity to
learn more about a different country
and its culture, especially in terms
of its landscapes, school system,
food, festivals and more.”
“I really liked the project because it al-
lowed us to discover a culture different
from our own. In addition, it allowed us
to hear another accent. Sometimes it
was difficult to understand each other,
but that added an interesting challenge
to the task! Overall, I really enjoyed my
experience and my partner and I are
still in contact via social network!”
“What I liked about this cultural
project was that we could pick the
time of our meeting and go at our
own pace. I have really improved
my spoken English skills and I am
now more comfortable expressing
myself in my second language; I
can actually see the improvement
when I have to speak English at
my part-time job. Overall, this
project has allowed me to learn
about a new culture and to meet
someone from another country!”
“For me, this project was a very fun
experience ! It’s always interesting to
learn about other cultures and realize
how different everyday lifestyles, ways
of thinking and rituals are different
from one place to another. Plus, I was
able to improve my communication
skills in my second language so it was
“Speaking with someone from another
country has also helped me learn the
English language in several ways.
The experience has also helped me
feel less stressed when talking with
people that I do not know. It was
actually helpful to try to speak in my
second language with my partner
whose second language is also En-
glish, because were not anxious about
making mistakes when communicat-
ing with one another.”
“I liked the different discussion
topics that led to interesting conver-
sations with my partner. The fact that
the subjects were designed by the
teachers and that there were specific
discussion questions helped me.
The Worldchat experience has helped
me open up to the world while sup-
porting my organizational skills as I
successfully planned and showed up
to the meetings with my partner.”
