This series gives the classroom teacher a guide to the practice of key aspects of language teaching, and considers some of the underlying concepts. In each book an introduction presenting important current issues in the area under consideration is followed by examples of classroom materials and techniques. The Internet opens up new opportunities for language learning, with the World Wide Web providing access to material on almost any topic, and electronic mail and conferencing allowing new ways of communicating with other teachers and learners. This book gives detailed examples of classroom activities for practising the 'core skills' that both teachers and learners need in order to exploit these opportunities, including searching on the Web, evaluating Web pages, creating language learning material, and communicating using the Internet. It also provides a useful guide to the Web and suggested Websites. The books Website provides downloadable worksheets, regular updates to the information and ideas in the book, and opportunities for feedback.
