ABSTRACT The publication of the Standards for Foreign Language Learning is an important step in the history of our profession. We now have guidelines for learning and teaching that emphasize the role of foreign languages in the acquisition of skills and knowledge in other fields of endeavor. The author proposes activities involving the World Wide Web that reflect the emphasis in the Standards on learning about other cultures and the necessity for becoming a lifelong learner. He proposes learning scenarios at the three grade levels for six standards covering all five Cs using French as the target language. The scenarios include topics of high interest for differing levels of proficiency in all skills with a variety of cultural topics.
