Podcast: Internet Addiction
Hooked on the Web
The Internet has become an important part of our daily lives. We work, socialize, and share our lives on the web, and many people claim they couldn’t live without it. How did we all become hooked on the web? Are smart phones and social media sites to blame, or could there be a more scientific explanation?
Today’s podcast features a reading from our Discussion Starters lesson on Internet Addiction. To see the full transcript and use the ready-made lesson plan in class, log in to ESL-Library and choose our Discussion Starters section.
