  • The access to a wide range of resources
  • The ease and speed of getting information to large numbers of students
  • The attractive layout and graphics
  • The links to numerous other sites
  • The students getting feedback without teachers having to mark their work
These may easily entice and attract teachers to the Internet (or Net) with its plethora of resources and teaching materials. Not only is the amount of information accessible on the Net extensive but the rate of growth of the Net since its inception has been unbelievably rapid. Indeed, the Word Wide Web (or Web) with which the Net is most commonly associated has itself grown since 1993 with the introduction of the graphical web browser software. The number of pages on the Web has doubled on the average of every 3 to 5 months since then. It is no wonder then that the growth of the Web is regarded to be `unparalleled in the entire modern history of spoken and written communication' (Maddux, 1996, p. 64).
Grammar Resources on the Net
The available resources for grammar on the Net can broadly be categorised into two main types: information-based and teaching resources. These are sites which provide: information on grammar items including lists of grammar items, Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) on correct grammatical usage, online grammar clinics/help centres/forums inviting questions with responses assured and also explanations of grammar rules with appropriate examples and teaching resources including lesson plans, worksheets and activities, tasks or exercises.

Integrative L2 Grammar Teaching: Exploration, Explanation and Expression
Pavel V. Sysoyev

This paper addresses the issue of L2 grammar teaching to ESL students with the focus on form and meaning. A method of integrative grammar teaching, consisting of three major stages (a) exploration , (b) explanation , and (c) expression (EEE) , is proposed. To illustrate how each of these stages function, several experimental lessons were conducted. The paper describes and discusses the lessons themselves, their rationale, and their implementation of the proposed method. An evaluative questionnaire conducted after the experimental lessons, shows that students preferred to learn L2 grammar using the EEE method , as opposed to form-based or meaning-based only approaches.
In learning an L2 grammar, students face a dilemma. On the one hand, students need to know the rules, as that is what they are tested on at schools. On the other, with a number of foreign visitors, or living in an L2 country there is a good need for communication in an L2. That is why there is a need to look at the ways of combining form and meaning in teaching foreign languages.

Grammar teaching and writing skills: the research evidence
Richard Hudson ( Dept of Phonetics and Linguistics, UCL, Gower Street, London WC1E 6BT [Published in Syntax in the Schools, 17:1-6, 2001]
1. Historical background
One of the reasons given for this major change of teaching policy is the beneficial effect of grammar teaching on the children's writing; but this has inevitably invited criticism from those who believe that the earlier research has proved this effect to be a myth. The status of the research evidence is clearly an important issue, and even an urgent issue given that the policy is already being implemented (on a massive scale). What, then, does the published research really say about the effects of grammar teaching?
2. The present survey
The following report is based on a small-scale attempt to find the answer. Because of time constraints I have regrettably not been able to check all original sources, so my conclusions must be treated with caution; but I think the overall conclusions are sufficiently robust to at least merit serious consideration. The bibliography has grown out of a wide range of sources, including some responses to a query that I broadcast over a number of email networks. I should like to thank the following for their contributions:

    by Lindsay Clandfield

    One approach to teaching language that has attracted a lot of attention over the past twenty-five years is a task based approach to learning and teaching. In task-based approaches, the focus of classroom activities is on the task, and ultimately on meaning (for more on Task Based Teaching and Learning, see the Methodology section ). In Jane Willis’ flexible model for task-based learning, learners begin by carrying out a communicative task, without specific focus on form. After they have done the task, they report and discuss how they accomplished this, perhaps listening to a fluent speaker doing the same task. Only at the end is there a specific focus on features of language form.
    The advantage of the task-based approach, according to its advocates, is that during the task the learners are allowed to use whatever language they want, freeing them to focus entirely on the meaning of their message. This makes it closer to a real-life communicative situation.

    Our ESL department has been recently trying to write new/revised course objectives for its three grammar elective classes. What we initially thought to be a routine task turned into an extended and often spirited debate about the role of grammar in ESL programs, what sorts of structures should/should not be taught at certain levels, why students can't seem to use grammar effectively in writing even when they've studied it very diligently, why so few grammar books provide enough contextualized analysis of "real usage" in spoken and written discourse, etc. New Perspectives on Grammar Teaching in Second Language Classrooms is a welcome addition to the ongoing discussion of how to best teach grammar in ESL/EFL contexts. The anthology is divided into three sections: the role of grammar in language teaching, specific practices in the grammar classroom and some current research on grammar structures. The authors, including such well-known lights in the field as Jack Richards, Sandra Fotos, Diane Larsen-Freeman, Peter Master, come from a range of perspectives and backgrounds, reinforcing the variety of teaching theory and practice in play today. A common theme throughout is the importance of second language acquisition research on how grammar is perceived and taught. The traditional notion of grammar as some idealized set of principles to master contradicts a more organic, language-as-unique-human-behavior view where the "givenness" of grammar how it is actually used in spoken and written discourse should take precedence over the "logic" of grammar with its emphasis on isolated rules, definitions, hierarchies and strictures. Another idea with strong currency here is the role of the learner in second language grammar acquisition and how he gains awareness of usage through self-analysis, positive feedback, contextualized practice and what Rod Ellis ("Methodological Options in Grammar Teaching Materials") refers to as the learner's "inbuilt syllabus."

    The chapters in this volume explore the international role of written English in the academic context and clearly demonstrate how writing is integrated in all aspects of academic communication in English. Writing from all over the world, the authors address how teachers of nonnative-English-speaking students can bring educational content and life experience into academic writing programs and, in turn, how TESOL can be included in mainstream academic programs.
    The 12 innovative programs described differ in context but share basic assumptions about how best to teach L2 writing. These programs assume that important intellectual development can occur in L2 writing classrooms.

    9. Grammar Teaching
    4 The use of grammar exercises isn t shameful. If we teach students a specific skill, they need to practise it. Then, after a short
    Today is: Some people have only to hear the word 'grammar' and a lost world is evoked of bright red telephone boxes, village cricket and obedient children with scrubbed cheeks. Others argue that formal grammar teaching is crudely authoritarian, renders our students passive victims, and anyway makes no difference to their writing ability. This is usually as far as the grammar debate gets - a stagnant and unwholesome blend of nostalgia, prejudice and myth. It also inevitably unleashes a set of unhappy polarisations - structure versus creative writing; teacher control versus student-centredness; correctness versus appropriateness. An example. One of the recurring arguments against formal grammar teaching is that decontextualised exercises do not work. The Bullock Report of 1975 lambasted grammar drills like these: Change all words of masculine gender to feminine gender in "Mr Parker's father-in-law was a bus conductor"; and: add the missing word in "As hungry as a....", "As flat as a...". It is an easy target. But who said grammar teaching had to be like that? Why assume that developing students' explicit knowledge of grammar can only be accomplished by resurrecting exercises from long-buried textbooks?

    It was my first day teaching high school in Aginsk, Siberia, and eight pairs of dark eyes stared up at me from wide Buryat faces. I opened the textbook to where another English teacher told me she'd left off and asked a girl named Serzhena to read. "Under the political guidance of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union the Komsomol teaches the younger generation to live, work, and struggle for the triumph of Communist ideals. The aim of the Komsomol is to build communism." "Is this interesting for you?" I asked them. I sighed with relief. By our next meeting, I'd replaced the textbook with stories such as Frankenstein and Gone With the Wind, adapted versions for English learners that the children were wild about. You mean we can actually read something interesting in English?, their shy, smiling faces seemed to say. Suddenly, many of them developed a renewed interest in this required class.

    1 Background to language teaching in UK schools
    1.1 L1 English
    the death of traditional grammar in English in most schools. `Should traditional grammar be ended or mended?' (Chomsky: Educational Review 1969 - pro mending). Now: `The overwhelming majority of teachers in the UK concede that attention to grammar and to the forms of language has been neglected.' (Carter 1996) Worse still, most teachers know very little about language structure.
    Positive developments:
    • Official acceptance of non-standard dialects and dialect vs accent. General acceptance of linguistics as important (but hard!). Language Awareness (and the Association for Language Awareness ) - acceptance of need for KAL (Knowledge About Language) and small-scale experiments in teaching it. `Oracy' - acceptance of spoken language as important.
