Internet Assisting EFL Writing Learning: From Learners' Perspective.
Huang, Shenghui Cindy
A study investigated the use of the Internet in writing instruction in English as a foreign language (EFL). Subjects were 24 students majoring in English at a Taiwan college. At the beginning of the writing course, several Internet program were introduced to all the students, and students were reminded of the potential for use of the Internet throughout the course, although only one Internet-related assignment was required. Participating students answered an open-ended questionnaire at semester's end. Results indicate positive student attitudes toward use of the Internet for writing instruction, with access to computers and the nature of assignments seen as significant factors in Internet use. It is recommended that the school make Internet-access facilities more accessible and reliable, and that teachers modify assignments to take advantage of student enthusiasm and communication and research needs. The questionnaire is appended. (MSE)
