Google.com has risen to worldwide prominence as the pre- eminently visited site on the Internet. Besides having developed simply an uncluttered search engine, along with an unintimidating interface, Google is in continuous creative progress, conceiving an increasingly multi- faceted set of Web-based products facilitating and expediting access to audio, video, or print data at any time anywhere and in multiple tongues. Serendipitously enough for students of language and culture online, these Google tools comprise user-friendly enhancements that demonstrably facilitate learning. At Coastline Community College, twenty self-selected learners of French language and culture online have participated in a project nicknamed “Googleries”, in which training and encouragement have been afforded in seven freely available “Googleries”; these comprise some of the most easily accessible Google tools designed and developed in the target language to enrich study. Besides learning vocabulary and grammar, Coastline Googleries project participants have acquired a new awareness of alternative linguistic pragmatics, worldviews, and technical skills.
