This article aims to provide an extensive review of web-based instruction (WBI), implemented within the realm of English language teaching (ELT). WBI is a teaching method that utilizes computer technology to promote learning experiences by leveraging the internet and web applications. It is suggested that educators carefully consider the related elements of age, affiliation, internet access, technological skills, educational needs, culture, interests, motivation and expectation when implementing WBI. In order for this model to be successfully implemented, educators can adhere to the following seven stages of the WBI framework: construct and objective identification, prior knowledge testing, learning objectives modification, learning experiences development, assessment methods identification, learning experiences evaluation, and learning outcomes reflection. Implementing WBI yields many benefits that traditional classroom teaching lacks. These include distance learning capability, convenient virtual interactive learning features, reduction of time constraints, and elimination of cultural and personality type obstacles. When evaluating the effectiveness of WBI, either the formative or the summative technique may be used. This article also provides detailed insights into WBI implementation that educators can adopt to promote more effective language instruction than what traditional classroom teaching offers.
