Working with Images

We encounter multiple images throughout our day – advertisements, photos on our phone, road signs, magazines, pictures people post online…Images are a large part of our consciousness, can increase motivation and add colour to our classes. Yet we often don’t exploit them enough in our lessons. In this session Chia Suan Chong looks at practical ideas and activities we can use to work with images – those that both teachers and students bring into the classes. She shares ideas on how we can allow images to become the motivational stimulus they are for conversation and the impetus to learn the language we need to describe them.
