ABSTRACT
This paper proposes the use of web pages as an interdisciplinary tool in classes of English for Professional and Academic purposes. Languages and Computing are two areas of knowledge which the graduates of the Polytechnic University of Madrid and its School of Architecture (E.T.S.A.M.) need to study in order to supplement the education received during their degree with the aim of facilitating their entry into the working world. An optional course in English language which uses computers could bring the students closer to obtaining a more complete future training. Web pages have been used as an interdisciplinary pretext in order to work with a group of students with varying levels of English. The level of motivation and the success of the activities that were carried out show the usefulness of combining the study of languages with other disciplines.
