Pic-Lits

With Pic-Lits, you can choose photos and make very short story-posters. It’s a good way to show your creativity without having to produce a lot of language. One of the best things about the site is that it gives you word-prompts — ideas to ignite your imagination.

First, try exploring the gallery. Here’s one I found that suits this time of year. If you don’t know the saying “Curiosity killed the cat”, think about what it means and if you have a similar proverb in Japanese or another language you’re studying.

It’s a proverb I don’t agree with. I think curiosity is one of the most important parts of learning. But the person who created this Pic-Lit perhaps agrees.

I like this one, too. I’m always telling students to add more visuals, add more color.

When you’re ready to create, start on the front page (keep in mind that you can create without signing up, but you won’t be able to save your pictures).

Here’s one I created today:

The Learn It page is also helpful.

This tool would be good for a quick self-introduction poster, or to help you explain vocabulary or a topic, or to share favorite quotes, or …. the list is endless.
