Web-based teaching as a performance enhancer in foreign language teaching in Sri Lanka

Abstract : This paper discusses the results of a pilot study conducted at University of Kelaniya in integrating web-based teaching into the study programmes of German as a Foreign Language. Since German is not a language popular at secondary school level, student offering to read the language at the university commence language learning as beginners. Albeit the courses are designed to impart language knowledge to all students equally, the performance of the majority of students at examinations indicated their difficulty in achieving the set benchmarks. Thus this study was conducted to enhance language skills and knowledge of culture and lifestyle of German speaking countries through web-based teaching in addition to traditional methods used earlier. The results at the examinations indicated a significant improvement of student performance.
