Teaching English to International students who are about to embark on their tertiary education requires a considered approach, encompassing listening, speaking, reading and writing. As a result this presentation will firstly focus on discussing second language acquisition theories that are now applied to Moodle so that practical activities can be developed to support the teaching of English in a digital environment. The fact that International students arrive with varying levels of computer literacy means the Foundation Program is also responsible for assisting students to learn essential computing skills through Moodle. Such skills are developed as students progress through structured lessons and are graded by Moodle. The presentation will also demonstrate the appropriateness of Moodle for enhancing English skills and how traditional methods can be incorporated within the Second Language learning classroom. The presentation will be supported with currently used Moodle activities that can be adapted and used in most classrooms or teaching programs.
