Le Courrier Electronique: Un Outil d'Enseignement en Milieu de Travail (Electronic Mail: A Teaching Tool in the Workplace).
Desmarais, Lise
Computer Assisted Language Learning, v12 n4 p323-44 Oct 1999
Describes a course that used e-mail to improve the German and Spanish written language skills of Canadian Foreign Service Officers. To lower attrition rates, the course required completion of authentic professional tasks, exposing participants to formal, technical, and informal language. Though initial interest was high, attrition was also high, partly because of the requirement to correct each other's assignments. (SM)
