This project is a collection of seven cartoon stories and follow-up exercises for teaching English As A Second Language. It is designed for intermediate and upper intermediate adult learners. Each cartoon has a specific grammatical or socio-linguistic focus. Communicative and written exercises follow each cartoon. The communicative activities are designed to engage students in conversation and creative group expression. The written exercises are of two types-: creative writing activities and traditional fill-in-the-blanks exercises. By engaging in these activities, ESL students may increase their competence in all the four skills areas. This collection of cartoon stories is not meant to be used as a main ESL text. Rather, it is designed to enrich a larger curriculum with creative supplementary materials.
