ABSTRACT

Many EFL learners do not have enough opportunities to practise the foreign language in real life situations where the mother tongue is mostly used. Based on a study case, it is attempted to explain how learning can become meaningful through learners’ comic strips. The potential benefits for the foreign language learning process in general will be investigated as well.
