What kind of effect can English Skype Lessons have on university students’ English skills and motivation? This presentation will report on a program that was implemented at a private university in eastern Japan, where, over two 15-week semesters, 98 university students were each given the opportunity to take 54, 25-minute English language lessons through Skype. The lessons were provided to develop students’ English skills so that they could confidently participate in study-abroad programs. The results of the program will be reported on, and tips for educators on how to set up and administer this type of program will be provided.
