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 .

History of the English Language

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.
