LANGUAGE TEACHING WITH CARTOONS.
FLEMING, GERALD
SHORT WELL-MADE CARTOONS, CAREFULLY MATCHED TO ORAL AND WRITTEN TEXTS, COMMAND THE LANGUAGE STUDENT'S ATTENTION BECAUSE OF THEIR NOVELTY AND MULTISENSORY APPEAL. THEY ARE ALSO IDEAL VEHICLES FOR THE DYNAMIC PRESENTATION OF EVERYDAY SITUATIONS WHICH CAN SERVE AS SETTINGS FOR NORMAL SPEECH PATTERNS. THESE FOUR-MINUTE CARTOONS LEND THEMSELVES TO A VARIETY OF APPROACHES SUCH AS VIEWING THE FILM WITH OR WITHOUT THE SOUND AND DISCUSSING THE FILM WITH OR WITHOUT PRESENTING THE DIALOG. IF THE TECHNIQUES USED ARE EDUCATIONALLY SOUND, THE STUDENT SHOULD ACQUIRE THE BASIC LANGUAGE SKILLS AND GAIN AN APPRECIATION OF THE CULTURE AND CIVILIZATION OF THE COUNTRY WHOSE LANGUAGE HE IS STUDYING.
