How to enhance students’ English writing abilities is a great issue in Taiwan. Mastering English writing significantly help students enter a superior university, increase job opportunities, and study well in English-speaking countries. This paper will briefly discuss the development of computer and Internet technologies, and exemplify the beneficial effects from numerous websites and online resources which the authors have used to improve Taiwanese students’ English writing skills. Finally, this paper will present various interacting strategies the authors have discovered from the Internet which can be used to improve students’ writing interest and abilities by means of writing with netpals through chatting-like communicative writing. All of these help students to advance their English writing skills, which are important to their career and study in this English-as-a-lingua-franca world.
