I work as Teacher of English at Asociación Rosarina de Cultura Inglesa and I also teach a CAE class. Now, I'm working in our Multimedia Institutional Project. The use of Information and Communication Technologies will certainly give our students the chance to interact with the outside world beyond the boundaries of the classroom and us, teachers, the opportunity to keep on developing as professionals. This environment is already a huge step.
About project work with students from other countries:
Thanks a lot for your words, they are very nice.
I'm really glad to be part of this project. I think it's a great way to improve my English. I just hope not to make a lot of mistakes.... lol
Anyway, I guess making mistakes is part of the experience and I hope to learn from them.
I have been involved in CALL (computer-assisted language learning) since 1983; of course, the technology has changed a lot over the years. I direct the language lab at the University of PIttsburgh in PIttsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA. Also, I teach a graduate-level course in CALL. My students are studying to be teachers of English and many other languages.

Thank you Analia for your comment!
I firmly believe in mutual support and no doubt, we must bear in mind our learners' opinions and propositions.
PS Sorry Ana, I've left the same comment on another page. I still don't know where I should 've left it. Dullest of all?
My apologies for taking so long to respond to your kind message!
It's equally a pleasure for me to be in touch with you again!
I'm also getting used to Ning. I first started using it late in 2007 or early this year in a Ning project started by our mutual friend and colleague, Carla Arena. I'm beginning to be comfortable with it, but I still have a lot to learn.
These Web tools give wonderful opportunities for international communication and networking, don't they?
