Increasingly, ESL teachers are incorporating the World Wide Web (Web) and the Internet into their teaching, taking advantage of its seemingly boundless capacity to present language and information. This article will briefly consider the rationale for using the Web in language teaching, and then focus on ways to facilitate the teaching of, and learning about, the reading of homepages, which is the entry point for Web reading. I suggest that homepages be considered a text type, and that an understanding of the structure and characteristics of this text type can help teachers and students in their approach to the reading of homepages so they can use the Web more effectively.
