These pages aim to be a presentation of a WebQuest model for second language. Such a model has been developed from the original model of WebQuest designed by Bernie Dodge in 1995.

Bernie Dodge's model constitutes one of the most efficient pedagogical structure on the Web. However, it is evident that designing and developing WebQuests for teaching and learning a second language is more complex than it is when the target is to teach and learn any other subjects or areas and the students use resources from the Internet in their first language. Of course using their own language helps them accomplish the task, whereas dealing with resources in a second or foreign language implies some obstacles.

Being convinced that the WebQuest can be a useful and efficient strategy in the field of second language teaching and learning, I have developed a systematization of those essential and convenient components when designing and putting into practice a WebQuest in the context second language acquisition.
