Counter Teachers of English and other languages have always known the value of pictures in the classroom. Pictures motivate, demonstrate and instruct. They provide cultural information which it is impossible to give in any other way, and stimulate language learning across the range of subskills in listening, reading and writing as well as speaking. Illustrated by the author, this book is a comprehensive resource in its own right as well as a valuable guide to the role of visual materials in present-day language learning.
