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.

History of the English Language

"What we know as the English Language today has evolved over thousands of years, influenced by migrating tribes, conquering armies and peaceful trade. Do you know the origins of the language you speak? Have a look at this detailed infographic from  Brighton School of Business and Management."

Seth Dixon's curator insight, April 12, 2013 10:26 AM

Languages, just like cultures, are incredibly dynamic and have changed over time.  Many people like to imagine an older version of their own culture of "how it used to be" or even "how it's always was."  This is an illusion though, to pretend as though cultural change is something new.  This fantasy allows for people to nostalgically yearn for what once was, even if that perceived pristine past was but a fleeting moment in history that was shaped by many other peoples, places and times.

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 :)

Quand la critique des « suburbs » envahit les séries TV U.S.| Métropolitiques

Quand la critique des « suburbs » envahit les séries TV U.S.| Métropolitiques | Brainfriendly, motivating stuff for ESL EFL learners | Scoop.it

"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."
