Owing to enormous and unprecedented expansion in technological, scientific and economic activities in the past few decades the demand for learning at least one foreign language has occurred. Moreover, new developments in Educational Psychology have given rise to an increasing emphasis on importance of learners' needs, interests, motivation, relevance of what and how they are learning (the British Council International Seminar on Teaching English for Specific Purposes, 1996). Similarly, today just like most methodologists and language experts, Fredericks (1996:1) assumes that language-training programs should provide optimal learning opportunities for all students through recognition of and provision for each individual's unique patterns of growth and development. The needs of the students in the same geographical region may have lots of common sights, and the success of one implementation should be shared with the neighboring countries to disseminate the success for a more fruitful world. This is one of the obligations to achieve the objectives of a true globalization process. Internet is the best tool to achieve such an objective. In this study, a sample English preparatory class model is introduced. This sample model was designed for the students at Gazi University Faculty of Engineering and Architecture in 1996-1997 academic year (about 32 weeks). (Contains 2 tables.)
