In my school my teens study with STAR TEAM (Oxford) Last week, we read a text about Australia in class and as homework I ask the students to look for more information about the country on the internet: famous cities, food, drink, cutoms, etc.
The aim was to make them practice reading in English (on line) and writing while learning about the foreign country.
The papers were really nice. They found lots of information about wildlife and places for tourism.
However, by doing this kind of activity, I'm afraid they sometimes don't use sites in English or don't find enough information...I don't have computers in my classrooms, so I can't apply this activity here at school. Any suggestion to make it differently?
