Comics

From Teflpedia

Comics (/kɒmɪks/) is a medium used to express ideas through images, often combined with text or other visual information.[1] Frequently, comics takes the form of sequences of panels of images. Often textual devices such as speech balloons, captions, and onomatopoeia indicate dialogue, narration, sound effects, or other information. The size and arrangement of panels contribute to narrative pacing.

The images in comics can be a great way of providing comprehensible input, where the same level of printed text would not be as comprehensible. Many low level graded readers are in comics medium.
