Comic Strips in the Teaching of English as a Foreign Language.
Elkins, Robert J.; Bruggemann, Christian
American comic strips and cartoons can be useful in English-as-a-second-language classes. They introduce variety and provide an inside look into American life and thought. Many current popular comic strips have cultural, social, and political significance and discuss the American way of life, society, and the individual. The English-as-a-second-language teacher must consider certain evaluative questions before using a particular comic strip. Technical problems about vocabulary and use of colloquialisms must also be kept in mind. (VM)
