The internet can certainly be a great motivator for students. It provides them with a new and interesting way to practice skills. Starting a blog journal will give L2 students a chance to express themselves in a non-threatening environment.

I totally aggre with your opinins about the Internet safety. Do not ever leave the personal information like address and phone numbers on the Internet are the basic ideas. But, what do you think of on-line shopping?
Is that safe under this circumstances? Will you encourage your students to buy their stuff on line?
