Colours are naturally part of any picture we contemplate, either we've created it ourselves, or we merely view it... Their world is full with symbols and echoes our imagination -that may be why it looks so enthralling to me.

This infographic also makes a good resource for ELteaching in many domains : graphics & art, marketing, advertising, poetry/literature (-- symbolic language), and so on : language activities (especially for lexis building) may be developed for ESL-EFL learners.

A brainfriendly resource. Creating an imaginary situation to contextualize the idiom, recording it with a script would make this resource really brainfriendly. One or several sentences examples are necessary to show how the  idioms  are used .

Gocomics provides ELT teachers with comics and editorial cartoons : an all the more interesting source of images (editorial cartoons, comics....) than almost all of them may be used in ELT. An excerpt from their usage rules :

"Educational/Classroom Usage :

There is no need to request permission if you wish to use a cartoon for educational or classroom usage.[...] Images may be used in the classroom for the following uses :

OverheadsSyllabi

Reprinted on tests or assignment papers

Passed out for sharing during lectures

Other uses within the classroom only

No exceptions whatsoever for "Calvin & Hobbes" strips... sigh :'( But they remain a pleasure for our eyes :)

Double-clicking on the main picture unveils a series of photos illustrating an autobiographical story told by a central character. The whole lot offers moving & interesting portraits -brief bits of NYC lives- as for me they sound/look great for building comprehension tasks...  & analysing visual documents as well ! Help yourself :o)

Monica Mirza's curator insight, April 1, 2013 4:07 AM

The poster above appeals to social networkers' self-mockery and I've completed it with a few questions to have the pupils/students decode it…

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Its author (kalokwong1 - on 9GAG.com, a fun sharing community) has selected a few social media networks to illustrate each of them with a mocking key-sentence.

Some of these networks are worldwide famous, yet others might be less familiar to French pupils/students : that's why I've added a few questions and suggest clues, key-words and links to help pupils/students discover them.

Hope it may be of some use to you  -should it be, thanks for your feedback :-)

Also see "Pearls before the Swine" :

 

--> http://ccat.sas.upenn.edu/~haroldfs/popcult/zeebah.html 

a page meant to focus on the language used in the comic strip Pearls before Swine (the episodes involving the crocodiles and the zebra).

The crocodiles are depicted clearly as not being very smart, and the languEFLage they use seems to be to be a blend of AAVE (or stereotypical perceptions of AAVE [African American Vernacular English]) but also with some elements of baby talk [...] Also grammatical elements such as 'me' for 'I' and negation with 'no', e.g. "Me no want lecture", 'we is' for 'we are', 'you gets' (for 'you get'), 'bootifuls couch', etc. [...].

"Longtemps présentées comme le symbole de l’American way of life, les suburbs américaines font aujourd’hui l’objet de vives critiques dans les séries télévisées. De Desperate Housewives à Weeds, les banlieues apparaissent, parfois de façon caricaturale, comme les lieux de la monotonie et du conformisme social, mais aussi comme le terrain de comportements immoraux ou déviants."
