Visual literacy in ELT
Opening plenary session
09.30 – 10.30 Aula magna
Throughout our lives, we are the unwitting subjects of an onslaught of images. From the mobile phone in your hand to the products in your supermarket trolley; from the magazines on your coffee table to the train seat in front of you, someone somewhere is trying to convey an idea to you through messages which are primarily visual.
In this practical talk, I would like to share some ideas with teachers who are interested in the use of media images for the basis of communicative activities in the language classroom.
