PREPOSITIONS AND PICTURES IN THE ENGLISH LEARNING MATERIALS

Y.G. Harto Pramono

Abstract


This paper explores the types of prepositions and the common picture types used to teach these prepositions found in English textbooks commonly used in primary schools. The results showed that the types of pictures may be problematic for presenting spatial relations due to an ambiguity the pictures may create and so as may affect the understanding and use of prepositions. Ideally all accompanying pictures should play an active and effective role in supporting learning.

Keywords


prepositions of location, spatial relations, effective picture characteristics, picture-text complementarity
