It’s the real thing! Using advertisements for noticing grammar.

Leys Bruno


In this talk we will explore how we can use the language from print ads and video commercials to help students notice how patterns of English grammar work and what meaning(s) they convey. The support of a visual context and the carefully thought-through choice of words makes this memorable language highly useful for both grammar awareness-raising activities and practice.
