I use comic sans all the time, because it looks a lot like handwritten versions of the letters they're learning. Some fonts have the versions of lower case a and g that they aren't taught, or just look dull. Comic sans 4 lyfe.

Comic Sans is the best font for elementary level EFL education.

I love comic sans! It's a misunderstood font.  ;D

It's also a really thick font, so it's very easy to see on the monitor from anywhere in the room, especially if you use contrasting colours (like white text with black outlining).

I never understood the hate that Comic Sans gets from the public at large, I've always loved it.

Lotta 똥 references today. Animal poop. Aerial poop. Poop in large quantities. Sneaky poop.

I've seen some powerpoints here where the students would probably have been better off if the teacher had used the wingdings font.  :sad:

Are you sure this isn't a student-made PPt? It's definitely Konglish, whatever it is.

Google is a wondrous thing.  Once for a class I had to bring in some images for some writing activity.  I found some fairly epic pictures and a fellow student asked how I'd found them. 

Literally googled, "black and white photos."  :laugh: :laugh:

From a functional standpoint, Impact does everything comic sans does, only better. Shame it's overused. Really, the best font to use for body text is something with high readability and little flourish, because you want to reserve that for headlines and other dividing marks.

Anyway, to make this a rant I'm really just generally dissatisfied with everything. Rawr rawr I'm a malcontent.

I'll never get over all the ways in which this English education system tries to teach students English without ever making them actually... speak English. In the sense that I can't create an activity that requires students to produce the language without giving them a list of options or something to read off of without my CT telling me it's too hard. Those sorts of activities don't exist in the book and they are never tested on it either.

America sucks at teaching 2nd languages, but even back then I had Spanish oral exams that required me to be able to have a (short) conversation with the teacher that wasn't all pre-planned. I actually had to understand the language and be able to respond. I'm not sure if that even happens here in middle and high schools..
