An FL pedagogy, integrating reading and writing skills in foreign language teaching, associated with Web resources, may contribute to the development of those skills while producing collective texts. The EquiText, a collaborative writing tool, allows for innovations in text production either through teamwork or individually, mostly asynchronously. The readers/writers' participation in text construction may promote virtual interlocutions among the writers (FL learners), and their readers (the lecturer, the other fellow writers, researchers/observers). Another perspective of the current sole text reader, writer and evaluator is suggested. We propose to analyze the usefulness of the Equitext in significant written discourse as a result of the interactions in the tool. Three foreign language productions sustain our assumptions: texts produced by intermediate Brazilian college learners of French, English and Spanish as FLs, either individually, in paper, or in teams, using the EquiText, with significant results.
