Short description: A “chat” is an online tool enabling real-time communication. Participants can sit in front of their computers and “chat.” They may be in the same room, building or in different locations anywhere around the globe. People type messages to each other using their keyboards, and the messages appear immediately on the screens of all the participants.

Chat, chatroom, moderator and nickname

A “chatroom” is an electronic space, typically a website. A chatroom can be accessed with a computer connected to the Internet. Chatrooms are usually focused on specific topics.

The “moderator” is the person who is responsible for the chat. She or he makes sure that participants follow the chat rules, and the moderator can ban those who do not.

A “nickname” replaces the proper name of a person and it is used while chatting. For safety reasons it is strongly recommended that you use a nickname -- not your real name – whenever you participate in an online chat.

Reflection: useful to involve english teachers
