Motivation of the Teachers :
Why do teachers use CMC ?

- To try and integrate German language lessons in a more global perspective;
- To convey skills to the student that are applicable outside of the classroom;
- To help students to work collaboratively and co-operatively;
- To involve the learner in the process of his learning by giving him the means (as much as possible) to control by himself the way he wants to learn;
- To combine learning of a foreign language into a real communication process in order to free this learning from too specifically school-bound constraints;
- To help students be motivated by their learning and take a personal control of it.

Since when ?

- Since 18 months, on a personal motivation. In my class it is a first try at ICT.

What do the teachers appreciate in these activities ?

- The ease of use, if and when communication facilities are open.
