Resources for the Internet: Applications for Foreign Language Teachers.
Finnemann, Michael D.
ICTFL Accents, v8 n4 p32-37
A session of the Illinois Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ICTFL) October 1995 conference dealing with Internet resources for second language teachers is summarized, and in extension of that information, World Wide Web resources for language teachers are enumerated. In the conference session seven types of Internet resource are described: news groups (topical bulletin boards); electronic mail; Internet relay chat (online conversation); TelNet (a service allowing the user to connect with any other computers on the Internet); file transfer protocol; gophers (Menu-based indexes to Internet resources); and the World Wide Web, with its use of browser programs. A source for further information about Internet use workshops is included. The list of Web sites that give language teachers access to language-related Web resources includes descriptions and addresses for 14 general Web-search sites, 29 general language-related sites (most related to specific college or university programs), and 8 sites of general interest to teachers.
