Mystery Skype in the MFL Classroom: Tutorial

Mystery Skype is an educational game, invented by teachers, played by two classrooms on Skype. The teachers will know where (and who) they are calling but students will not. The aim of the game is to build cultural awareness, critical thinking skills, and geography skills by guessing the location of the other classroom through a series of yes/no questions using the target language (for example, Are you in Europe?). It is suitable for all age groups, from kindergarten through university students, and can be adapted for any subject area.
