A Guide to Web Surfing for EFL Students

The Internet is very exciting. It is changing the face of human culture. However, the internet can also be intimidating and overwhelming, because there are so many websites. Good web surfers are good at searching for information and evaluating the sites that they find. And just like real surfing, it takes practice to become good at web surfing. You can learn alot just by playing on the web, but you can also waste a lot of time. Ask yourself these questions:
How can I find the information that I need most efficiently?
How can I evaluate the information that I find?
This site will help you learn how to be a better web surfer. Start by taking the Internet Knowledge Quiz.
