The Spanish Club at Zachary Elementary School participated in a conference call recently with students in Navarra, Spain.

As a part of an international pen pal project, the Zachary youth communicated with students at Colegio de Formación Lingüística on Dec. 17 via Skype.

Prior to making the online call, the ZES students introduced themselves to their Spanish counterparts through letters they handwrote in Spanish, third- and fourth-grade Spanish teacher Crystal London said.

Through Skype, which allows two parties to have a verbal conversation over the Internet on a computer screen, the Zachary children met Ana Turrillas and her students at the CFL Academy.

“They had a great time talking to each other about their personal interests, their schools and different cultures,” London said. “Our kids represented ZES, the Zachary community and the United States very well.”
