Time for a holiday?

For April, I have planned a month of advert-themed prompts on Infinite ELT Ideas. Here is the second:

Here is another advert from my cinema trip. It advertises the British holiday company Thomson.

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

Newspaper adverts

For April, I have planned a month of advert-themed prompts on Infinite ELT Ideas. Here is the first:

I saw these two adverts very soon one after the other before a film at the cinema last week. They advertise two famous newspapers in the UK, The Sun and The Guardian.

While writing this post, I also found a satirical reworking of The Guardian video as if made by The Sun.

What would you do with these videos (separately or together) 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!)

The 3000th #eltpics pic

Monkey and Coke bottle

What would you do with this picture in your classroom?

It was the 3000th picture posted on Twitter to add to the Flickr #eltpics stream.  Find out how to join in with #eltpics and take a look at some of the 30+ sets that we have created together so far. All of the pictures (including the one above, taken by @klizbarker) are shared under a creative commons licence, meaning that they are available for teachers to use in their classrooms without having to worry about breaching copyright.
