How can my friend and I use our Skype video chats to learn a new language?

My friend is across the country, and we video-chat often. We'd both like to learn a new language, and we have decided to dedicate some of our regular Skype time to practicing conversation in another language.
Are there any language-learning websites or software that are built to help an existing pair of speakers practice (an existing pair = not those sites that match you up with another speaker, since we already have a pair)? As we will both be new to the language (but not to language-learning), we need something that will give us prompts, words to try and use, and other ways to structure our learning. Bonus points for tutorials that are focused on beginners in the language and Asian languages.
