Foreign language teachers know the benefits of bringing art into their classrooms. On one hand, works of art are cultural artifacts that convey rich cultural perspectives. Integrating art into the foreign language curriculum facilitates visual learning, providing valuable opportunities to help the students develop visual thinking. Furthermore, art can also be an effective resource to enhance oral and written communication.
