LeLoup, Jean; Ponterio, Robert
With the focus on language, culture, and communication in the national standards for foreign language learning, foreign language teachers are continually searching for better ways of accessing authentic materials and providing experiences that will improve their students knowledge and skills in these target areas. This digest highlights a number of Internet applications that can be used to enrich the foreign language classroom: electronic mail; electronic lists; electronic journals; the World Wide Web; streaming audio and video; search engines; remote access to libraries and databases; file transfer; and chat, audio, and video communication.
