Face your Manga is a site where you can create your own manga style images in a few simple steps.When you are happy with your avatar you email it to yourself and download it on to your computer.

How to use it with your students:

You could ask your students to create the images as similar to themselves as possible and bring it to the class. You mix the images and students try to guess who the images represent in the class. Alternatively, students might create images of celebrities and bring it to class for other to guess (language: comparative adjectives).

You or your students could create the images and bring it to the class to exchange with others. Then, they have to create a background for each character: where they are from, what they do and hobbies. (language: Present Simple, Present Continuous)

You or your students could create pairs of the images and bring it to the class. Put students in pairs and distribute the images. Students do not see their partner’s image and describe the image they have got. Then, the other student says what the differences are. When they have finished they show each other the images.

You or your students could create a couple of images and bring it to the class. Put students in pairs one person in a pair describes an image to the other student who draws it. Then, they show the original image to compare it with the drawing. (language: clothing, appearance)
