Stephane Derone, who teaches French at the Howard school, Rainham, Kent (see lead story in You amp; your job section) , set up for his department. Original resources on the site includean online word search game made up of French metereological terms.

Stephane has used Java applets which enable the student to ring a word by dragging the mouse across it. "The applet use can be found at www.ericharshbarger.comjava (one of many websites which offer free applets and give instructions on how to use them)." Stephane also advises:
