When a foreign child is staying with us, how should they use the internet at home?

The ALLEF experience is all about immersing yourself in a new language. Therefore, whilst we would hope that children would only use the internet to view sites in their new language, experience has taught us that this does not happen. Unsupervised internet use should therefore be avoided but if you, or other family members, are able to sit with the child while they use English websites, that is fine. Occasional letters to friends and family in their native language are acceptable and often provide something special to look back on.
