eltpics was created in late 2010 by Victoria Boobyer, Carol Goodey and Vicky Loras. From Spring 2011, two more curators joined the team: Fiona Mauchline and Sandy Millin.
Used as flashcards, illustrations, or prompts, the eltpics gallery can be a wonderful way to bring realia to the ESL classroom.

eltpics can help a lot and it would make it easier to establish a theme if one was needed.
