This article discusses the development of a practical approach to Internet-assisted teaching of Spanish as L3 to students at a tertiary educational institution majoring in English (L2). The approach is distinguished by (1) a reading orientation when the Internet is primarily (though not exclusively) used as a source of materials for students to read with the sole purpose of engaging in skill-acquisition learning activities and tasks and (2) the use of English language Internet resources to help Ukrainian/Russian-speaking (L1) students learn Spanish as their second, after English, foreign language (L3). The impact of the developed approach on students' progress is analyzed and discussed.
