Culture File 26:
Anything we say here about the Internet will be out of date by the time you read this note, because things are changing so quickly. A few years ago there were some small differences between British and American words for computers (British — wastebasket, U.S. — trash), but they are now the same (the American version), because the same software is used all over the world.
There are many Web sites with English language teaching exercises, picture dictionaries, magazines etc. You should try to spend some time on them. For a start, go to the Macmillan Education Web site www.macmillaneducation.com
The very best way of using the Internet is to search for things that interest you. Maybe you’re a fan of a rock group, or a sports star, or interested in a topic like the environment. Don’t be afraid to post messages on guest books and chat rooms. Many non-English-speaking people do this and you will find that English speakers will be interested in your message, not in how accurate your grammar is.
