Summary:   A few weeks ago I posted a request for information about Web-based
computer-aided language learning. I received very prompt and helpful
responses from a number of people. As promised, here is a summary of
the information I received:

list as a resource and sent a long list of sites that are using the
Web for language teaching purposes:
