Applications for Everyday Life Activities
The Everyday Life Activities Photo Series, short ‘ELA’ (1992, 1995, 1997, 1998) was conceived as a versatile language ‘kit’ with a wide range of applicability for language teaching, learning, training, testing and therapy. It consists of 3,000 color photo cards (divided into three sets of 1,000 cards) which can be used interchangeably, providing unlimited possibilities for creative use.
Each set comes with a manual with indexes and suggestions for application. Depending on specific goals and needs, various language tasks/games on the word, sentence, and text/discourse level can be developed. ELA is based on linguistic and psycholinguistic principles and variables and allows for a systematic and comprehensive application. Due to the large number of photo cards the ELA Photo Series is optimal for intensive and long term use.
The ELA photo cards can be used very innovatively to stimulate an individual’s linguistic creativity. ELA is really an instrument at the disposal of the user’s ideas: whatever the therapy or teaching concept is, it can be realized with the ELA photo cards.
