Cute Idea #10: Taste the Word
When doing a one word image, or just about anytime you feel like doing it, you can just stop with the comprehensible input and taste the word. What does this mean?
It means that as language teachers we are here to represent all aspects of what language is, and certainly one overlooked aspect of our work is in pointing out to our students what words really are – sound.
And sound can be beautiful. And most of us attempt to make the sentences we say beautiful, but why not do that with individual words? Why not bring the beauty of each word into our instruction?
