I learned in my class that day that only 27% of web users access the internet in English. I was astounded at that fact! We tend to think of English as the "lingua franca" and assume that everyone uses it around the world. This is true to an extent, but it's amazing how much is available for Language teachers in their target languages.
We, Foreign Language Educators of today, have access to so much good stuff. Why are we not using it constantly? Most teachers (who are a generation or two older than me) don't know where to begin. Creating web pages is manageable but can be difficult. Google Sites is a great tool to help teachers who want to create web pages get started. It's easy because all the formatting is done for you; all you have to do is input your information! Using Java to add animation and sounds can be a way to spice up lessons. The best use of the internet for Language teachers is obviously the use of authentic materials in the target language. There are so many available. What's important to remember, when letting students use the internet, is that is needs to be facilitated well and should fit the interests of your students.
