Found in Translation is a series of posters by Anjana Iyer. She aimed to illustrate words which cannot be translated into English word-for-word. I think the results are beautiful. There are 100 of them as part of a 100 days project run by artists.

What would you do with these posters in your classroom? You can make any assumptions you like about the context they are used in. Post your ideas in the comments below. All ideas are welcome (there are no wrong answers!)
