Internet Lessons
We've put together several Internet lessons that you can use with your students to familiarize them with the Internet and Internet-related English. Each lesson involves the students working alone or in groups to accomplish a task by surfing through various English-language web sites.

Due to the varying levels of students using this site we haven't included any vocabulary lists, explanations of various Internet terms or any specific grammar focus. Depending on the students' level you may have to prepare them with some basic vocabulary before they venture on-line.
