) has been developed by the UK’s Department for Education and Skills (DfES) to support international collaboration for teachers globally. It’s absolutely free to use and as a registered eLanguages user you can start building your online project straight away – you have up to 100MB of web space for each project. You don’t need to wait until you have a partner. You can also join projects already up-and-running and looking for new partners.
Additionally, you can build up your ‘Hello Page’ to showcase to the world yourself, your classes, your school and your town, which will help potential eLanguages partners get an idea about who you are, where you teach and the kind of projects you'd like to do. This is also the place to say what languages you speak and what countries you want to partner with. Why not get your students to help you with your Hello Page… you could include on the page pictures that your students have taken of your school, web links they have found about your town or region, text they have written about their interests.
