In this presentation, we will introduce you a learning module, or e-learning tools, which was developed to give best support for learners to learn dialogues in various kinds of learning styles and to meet their needs for study. All the materials are structured in XML and specially designed structural tags are added to the original texts. Java Script based programs were written to automatically reproduce different kinds of educational material from "an" original XML formatted text. A skill-based idea of learning materials is also adopted to provide ready-made models for learning. In this learning module, four leaning models are currently included, which are role-play model, read-aloud model, dictation model, and copying model. They are not based separately on each four skill but designed to cover combination of skills. The prototype web-based programs for these learning models are presented and give the basis for the discussion of the idea of a learning module.
