Hi Nia this is Fernando Najera,

 

I´m an English teacher at Universidad Tecnologica del Norte de Aguascalientes. We are also looking for an institution of nativie English speakers.

I was wondering that if possible we could partner up even though we are not native speakers but that in a complete session our students practice only English.  I think I saw an ad last week  where you where looking for a group to work with in the afternoon. I know that the best would be that our students worked with English native speaker but this is another form to have our students practicing their English.

Most of my students are from basic English level and their ages goes from 18 to 25 years.

We have a computer lab that has the necessary equipment to have virtual session dut to sometimes I have virtual sessions with other universities.

 

I hope in the future we can have a virtual session.

 

Fernando Najera.

IAt this time we are not actively seeing L2-L2 conversations but rather 2/L1-L1/L2. However, there is obvious merit in hainvg L2 converstaions with non-native speakers. Afterall, in a world where English is a lingua franca, speaking Enlighs with non-native speakers of English is a reality.

I would like to speak with you via Skype on Friday morning or evening or on the weekend regarding how we might collaborate. For example I can share your information and proposal including gneral scheduling possibilities with every teachier who teaches English in my department at ITESO.  Please let me know the date and time that works best for you. I am located in Guadalajara Mexico (-6 GMT). Thanks so much.

Sincerely,
