Worldchat is a pedagogical tool that allows second language students to interact verbally in an authentic context with fellow students across the globe to improve their command of the language. For example, while a pair from Rio and Memphis discusses in French or German their respective festivals and traditions, another tandem from Seoul and Quebec talks in Chinese or English about their own education system. As students from around the world practice second language conversation skills together, they negotiate meaning, build vocabulary as well as expressions. We are evolving in a multilingual reality, and Worldchat allows students to be exposed to a variety of accents as they discover different world cultures.
