    If I didn't use "Skype" as a verb, or as bhai has above, I would say "I talked to her on Skype."

    I totally agree with SoothingDave

    And what would you say about a time-expanded payment service? So that you could pay your skype teacher gradually, I mean you just set the limit and study while your money is spent wisely.
    There’s such a service – https://stretchpay.net/

    - I found it when I was taking skype lessons and wanted to save because much time was spent for nothing and I first had to pay for it. They are an official partner of Pay Pal, so there’s no trick.
