A background questionnaire, a test on Internet information and a survey were administered to 115 foreign language learners. Data gathered were analyzed statistically. The results showed that EFL learners had positive attitudes towards the Internet except some items such as addiction, socialization and shopping. It was implicated that positive attitudes would contribute to foreign language learning via the Internet after overcoming some potential problems and disadvantages.
