Details This presentation illustrates some of the ways we can exploit the Internet to provide stimulating materials for content-based language classes. In the main section it shows some examples of resources that are available on the Internet but, which compared to text or image based material, may not yet be so commonly exploited by EFL teachers. It then looks at some of the advantages of the Internet in general as a resource for teaching materials as compared to traditional classroom resources, and finally considers some limitations the Internet may have as a source of teaching materials.
