Is there anyone who wants to add my skype ID? Then we can share any interesting things

I'm just thinking if I can have some friends on line who can share any interesing or meaningful things with each other.I'm Chinese and I am going to teach English after my graduation.I feel that learning a foreign language is not an easy thing because it involves so much.We,of course,can't learn it well only focusing on our text book and sitting in the classroom.I want to give my future students lively class and get them to really enjoy what they learn.To widen their horizon and rich their lives.
So I'm wondering when I have to teach my students something if I can give them some authentic materials other than the teaching materials.
Once I have a topic to teach them,may I have some opportunities to get some materials like personal video or other written article from those native speakers or others.
If you like pls add my skype :annayang618 and we can learn from each other too.

        The only online community I participate in is TED.

        I really do not know where to even begin to help you.
        I'm so sorry.
