This well-illustrated visual dictionary has five categories of illustrations: biology vegetal, biology animal, human body, music, transport, and clothing.(For some reason, the clothing category is located toward the bottom of the page, near the Contact Us box.) Click on one area find many thumbnail graphics. Click on the thumbnail graphic for the fullsize, labeled image. For example, the human body category has 69 thumbnails. Click on the eye for an enlarged eye labeled with the scientifically correct terms. Definitions for the terms are at the bottom of the page. You can also search by the actual word. Click the Lexicon button to search all the detailed labels from all the illustrations, like "iris", a label on the "eye" page. The site is also available in French, so it would be useful for French language, ESL, or the general population.

tag(s): french (89)

In the Classroom

Caution: Since this site was developed in France, the attitude toward nudity is different from that in the U.S. Illustrations under the human body section include nudity and labeling of ALL body parts. However, this is a very comprehensive visual dictionary and not directed just toward younger children.

Although this site is a wiki and therefore editable by anyone who chooses to change the content, it highlights the differences between cultures and how people interpret behavior. Find out about what is considered "good" and "bad" etiquette in places all over the world. Perhaps your students would even like to write their own additions? It is worth mentioning to your secondary students that the authorship of wiki content is unknown and would therefore be unacceptable as an "academic" source.

tag(s): cross cultural understanding (117), cultures (107)

In the Classroom

Use this as a discussion-opener in your world language or world cultures class. If you put the Faux Pas wiki up on a projector or allow your students to explore it, assigning each group to find one thing that is perfectly acceptable in your home country but considered offensive in another, you can then discuss the differences one needs to consider in learning the language or history of that country. As a a follow-up in a world cultures class, ask students to write up their own etiquette guide for their school or home town.

Although these exercises were created for college courses, they start at the beginning and provide both grammatical and cultural information, illustrated with beautiful graphics. Among the topics of the "study modules" are Day of the Dead, the festival of San Fermin in Pamplona, and street kids in Colombia. There are extensive audio files (these require Quicktime) as well as online practice for grammar.

Could be used as an exciting tool in the foreign language classroom! You may have to talk to your network adiministrator on filtered school district networks, if they have blocked translation tools to prevent students from "doing" assignments via these tools.
