Abstract

This paper presents an account of a developing project designed to enhance the language proficiency and cultural awareness of students of both Indonesian and English through inclusion in their language program of computer-mediated exchanges. The use of computer-mediated communication means the focus is particularly on reading and writing although the texts created also serve as a basis for in-class discussion as teachers and students work to interpret the intention of their interlocutors.

Impact and interest:

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
