The internet. Honestly, how did we survive without it? You wouldn’t be reading this without the internet. You wouldn’t be able to take your EF English Live classes without it. Just imagine!

We use the internet for so many things in life; whether it’s finding answers to everyday questions, contacting business partners, or just searching for information. To help you find your way around the web, here are some common words associated with it.

First, let’s start with your connection. A ‘connection’ is the way you are able to use the internet. The two most common ways are DSL or Wi-Fi. A DSL connection requires a cord to your computer while a Wi-Fi connection is wireless. Some connections are fast and some are slow. A Wi-Fi connection is often available in cafes or bars.

Once you’re connected, what do you surf the internet for? ‘Surfing the internet’ means searching for something on the web. While you’re surfing the internet, you will come across many websites. ‘Websites’ are the web pages you see online, each has a unique address or URL. You are on our blog’s website right now.

There are all kinds of websites out there, like blogs and forums. You’re reading a ‘blog’ right now. It’s a less formal website usually focusing on a certain subject or topic. There are many types of blogs, and we can even use the word blog as a verb, as in, ‘I am blogging right now’.

A ‘forum’ is a discussion page. People often post questions to receive answers from other people. If you have ever had a problem and looked on the internet for a solution, you might have read of someone with the same problem on a forum.

So do you have a favorite blog you read or a forum you visit regularly? What do you surf the internet for?
