"A picture is a text without words"

Images could be described this way: "A picture is a text without words". This is what makes them invaluable for the language classroom. They provide rich and immediate content, but they leave it up to the student how to put that into words. They can't 'cut and paste' as they can from a text. It doesn't put words in their mouths. This article is a brainstorm of ways in which we can use images in the class. See also the talk on this topic and the book Pen Pictures.
