This study explores participants' views with regard to the integration of Internet tools in language learning activities. The subjects were 44 K10 male students and their teacher who first joined a Technology-Enhanced Language Learning project called "Advanced Joint English Teaching" in Taiwan. The students participated in six Internet-based teaching activities; group e-mailing, a Web-based course, an e-mail writing program, English homepage design, video-conferencing and chat room discussion. The study found that the AJET project provided the students with an opportunity to experience new technologies; learners felt the pleasure of learning and increased their learning possibilities. The students liked and approved of learning English using the Internet, but differed in their opinions about its benefits. Some pedagogical suggestions are provided for the effective use of computer networking in the second- and foreign language classroom
