Title

Using Internet Tools as an Enhancement of C2 Teaching and Learning

Abstract

In spite of many efforts and contributions from previous researchers, the need for a creative approach in using combined Internet tools for C2 learning has not been found. This pilot study shows that the use of Internet resources is a meaningful way to integrate language and culture that provides opportunities for students to learn about the target culture while using E-mail to discuss cultural aspects with native speakers. In addition, the use of the Internet and E-mail increased students' interest and motivation for learning C2 and L2 in a dynamic rather than passive way. Foreign language teachers should be encouraged to explore and experiment with the Internet to fully exploit the possibilities for language learning by means of this resource that opens pathways to authentic materials and dynamic communications with native speakers around the world.
