Learning English with Comic Strips

I've always told my students that comics are a great way to learn about language structures and it's current use, for they:

  • are visually appealing

  • provide the student with comprehensible input

  • are fun and engaging

  • deal with language used in our daily lives

  • give the students a sense of accomplishment as the are able to figure out language from context and images

  • Today, I've just come across this fantastic site with all kinds of phrasal verbs in comic-like format. Learning English with Comics is a great way to practice an introduce new phrasal verbs to your students. It can be done in short bits, it provides context, and it gives tons of examples. Plus, the visuals are clean and clear. I'm sure students will love to practice English with those comic strips!
