Abstract

This article describes a cross-cultural e-mail exchange that provided students in the United States and Chile with an ongoing source of authentic cultural input from the target country. The exchange was organized between a class of U.S. college students of advanced Spanish conversation and composition and a class of Chilean university students of advanced English as a Foreign Language. Student-to-student dialog journals exchanged by e-mail in both Spanish and English served as the basis for feedback and cultural commentary from the peer abroad. The cultural input received was observed in the written and oral work. of U.S. students participating in this project.
