It depends on how you use it.

If you can 'skype' regularly, it will be better than going to good English institute once a week.

I think that the daily life usage is the foundation of language learning.

And skype has very good audio quality , is the most popular voip software and has wonderful features.

However, skype itself doesn't give you talk-buddy.

So, making english speaking friend is one obstacle to  overcome.

By the way, they have skype cast where you can talk with multiple people. It's similar to yahoo chat room or something except that you use your voice in skypecast.

In my humble opinion, speaking and listening as a daily routine will revolutionize your way of English learning.

teacher told us to speak english in daily life…but it's hard..especially in the public ,people would stare..they would think we get the same color ,we should speak the same language too…in the end u will feel weird urself…so using Skype to talk online is good…
