M-Skype Project

This page briefly introduces the M-Skype project.

What is M-Skype?

Language exchange through Skype about culture, education, and campus-life between UT students learning English and MIT students learning Japanese.

M-Skype is a course for language and cultural exchange between UT students and MIT students using Skype. It offers Japanese students an opportunity to practice English, while American students can practice Japanese. At the same time they can learn about each other's university and culture and get an impression of what it would be like to study or do an internship abroad. It is also the first step for many students to building an international network.

The course is taught in a repeating 3-week pattern of:
1. preparation (brainstorming, topic selection, group discussions, debates, etc.),
2. language exchange using skype (30min. in English, 30min. in Japanese, 30min. free choice), and
3. wrap-up & Feedback (summarizing, sharing, and discussing experiences with the group).

The M-Skype course is part of the Creative Engineering Project:
