Edited By Anita Auer, Daniel Schreier, and Richard J. Watts

This book "challenges the assumption that there is only one 'legitimate' and homogenous form of English or of any other language" and "supports the view of different/alternative histories of the English language and will appeal to readers who are skeptical of 'standard' language ideology."

Abstract: The purpose of this descriptive study is to point out the importance of using illustrations as supplementary materials in Foreign Language Teaching. The study is composed of three main sections: importance of Foreign Language Teaching, importance of illustrations as materials, and use and significance of illustrations in Foreign Language Teaching.Based on related previous research, it has been found out that illustrations used as supplementary materials in Foreign Language Teaching are unsatisfactory and slipshod. Besides this, it has also been revealed that illustrations are made indiscriminately and by one illustrator. The view which states that illustrations will positively contribute to the understanding of texts, containerization of abstract notions and teaching of linguistic attainments like grammar has been supported in this study..Finally, it has been foreseen that use of illustrations in language education will make Foreign Language Teaching more enjoyable and long lasting.
