English Through the internet

Welcome to English Through the Internet!
In this distributed learning course preservice teachers meet with students of English through the Internet. The preservice teachers and the EFL or ESL pupils learn the tools of the Internet together and at the same time the preservice teachers help the EFL pupils to improve their reading and writing skills.

This year 2002 there will be 2 inter-cultural projects between Gallaudet University for the Deaf in Washington D.C. and student teachers in Talpiot college of Education Tel Aviv. To access these courses click here  
In the inter-cultural project between the preservice students and first year students at Gallaudet University for the deaf in Washington D.C. In this project the students work in pairs and write a virtual tour about their partner's culture. The pairs work together and get a joint grade!  
The Course is divided into a number of modules. Each module teaches a different aspect of the Internet and also practices a reading and writing skill. There are teaching notes for each module and extra readings.
