ABSTRACT
The article discusses a study aimed at exploring how visual material can be applied towards stimulating the learning of foreign languages and cultures and how images can become a privileged source of cultural information for foreign language learners. It addresses the definition of the term "image" and the relevance of visuals in the foreign language classroom and provides suggestions on how language teachers can promote visual literacy and approach images from a cultural perspective.
