Abstract

This research tries to examine the effects of Internet on EFL writing of some university students. The researcher uses the Internet as an educational tool, in the experimental group, instead of using writing text books, but text-books are used in the control group. The experimental group is provided with a computer to discuss the content of the students’ findings in the Internet searches. In the control group, two writing books, Paragraph Development and Writing power are taught by the researcher. Attempts are made to find justifiable answer to the following question: “Is there a significant difference between Internet learning and the writing ability for university students?”A test of TOEFL is administered to both groups to check the homogeneity. Both groups enjoyed an intact pre-test post-test design. The analysis revealed that using Internet can reinforce writing ability.
