Abstract

In this sophisticated era where there are a lot of technologies that can be utilized and used to support the teaching and learning process, it is the time for teachers to be more creative and make use of the visual literacy by using the available media and technology. In this paper, the writer will discuss an idea of utilizing visual literacy in the teaching of English as a foreign language for university students. Simple everyday things can be turn into visual literacy material in the classroom, for instance, the book covers, advertisements, pamphlets, comics, newspapers, films, animations and even students’ personal photographs (Bamford, 2003). Utilizing visual literacy at the university classroom can help the students learn the language faster than just merely using texts available on the textbooks or the module for the teaching.
