new year, new lesson material

I am excited to start this year of teaching.  It is going to be a lot of hard work in reading and learning.  I spent a whole day just doing up one lesson for a visual text.  But I hope my students will enjoy it as much as I enjoyed putting it together.  This week, we are going to have a look at the aviation industry and find out what’s the appeal in low cost carriers versus full service flights.  We are going to find out what is the appeal of the iconic Singapore Girl in the world famous sarong kebaya. Finally, we are going to deconstruct what makes these airline advertisements work.

Here’s something fun I chance upon while reading up on low cost carriers.  Enjoy!
