Abstract :

Web Resources for TESOL 2018, licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 License, on introduces many useful websites for English language teaching and learning around the world. However, this paper focuses on exploring and applying part 1 “Teaching the four skills” in English lessons to improve 4 language skills for high school students, especially those at Nguyen Thai Hoc High School in Binh Dinh province, Vietnam. The results showed that the application of some websites from the web resources for TESOL 2018 to English lessons like ESL Discussions (, ESL Video (, Breaking News English (, Marking Mate ( and many others, has been very effective for both students and teachers. First, this teaching method greatly promoted not only students’ English communicative competence but their ability of exploring, self-studying, and accumulating knowledge from huge Internet resources. Second, the websites from Web Resources helped improve teachers’ creativity and flexibility in their teaching process. In addition, teachers were not tied to the current knowledge of a lesson, they learned more about other issues and aspects related to the lesson topic instead. Third, with images, sound, animation, ... from the webs, teachers could build lively lectures to attract the attention of students and provide them with many opportunities to practice their language skills. Finally, the interaction between teachers and students was much enhanced.
