A book I'd like to read
Helbling Languages has a new book that sounds very interesting. Imagine That! Mental Imagery in the EFL Classroom by Jane Arnold, Herbert Puchta and Mario Rinvolucri is all about using students' imagination. It has 5 sections - Visualisation Training, Language in Mind, Stories Stories Tell, Images of Time and Space, and Spinning Inward. The book includes a CD-ROM with music, artwork, photos, photocopiable worksheets, and visualization scripts. There's an article about this book which includes several sample activities here. I'm looking forward to reading it and trying out some of the activities in my classes.
