The purpose of this study is to investigate the ro le that e-mail could take in the Teaching of English as a Foreign Language (TEFL). EFL teachers are well known for their innovation and creativity. When a new method or approach comes along, EFL teachers explore and discuss it, and sometimes adopt it, partially or completely. lt is probably safe to say that most EFL teachers integrate the best elements of severa! approaches in order to reach their goals. For the past severa! years teachers have been talking about computers. The discussion ftrst centered on the use of computers as word processors, asking such questions as, " should students use the computer for wriling assignments?" The debate is over now with teachers accepting the computer as a valuable tool for developing students writing skills, a clear example of that is the compute!" assisted language learning (CALL). However, "much of the discussion about the interactivity of computers and multimedia in language teaching has actually been about interaction between leamers and a software program, not about the interaction between learners or leamers and target Ianguage speakers vía networked computers" (Holliday, L. 1999).
