Connecting Visuals and Language for Learning


How often do you find ELT students still confusing the same words, repeating the same lexis and wondering how to break those linguistic habits?

As language teachers will know, adding visuals for learning always helps. Here is an example:


GrammarCheck  has a range of infographics which may be used in lessons, from Plagiarism Mistakes & How to Avoid Them (Infographic) to 20 Clutter Words & Phrases We Use Too Often (Infographic) to10 Common Phrases & What You Can Use Instead (Infographic). There are infographics on essays and writing as well as British and American Differences . After analyzing a specific topic, students could create their own infographic with the guidelines and linguistic recommendations that they found most useful. 

How to help learners remember all these recommendations and linguistic rules?

Nicky Case has published a wonderful set of examples and explanations for remembering - How to remember anything forever-ish 

In Nicky Case's  •THINGS YOU CAN PLAY• , you can find further resources, such as How Do We Learn? A Zine - each discovery in •THINGS YOU CAN PLAY• will surely inspire you for lessons and approaches in the classroom.
