Learners create a mental image from a text read/viewed/heard. Visualising brings the text to life, engages the imagination and uses all of the senses.
  • In my mind, I can see…
  • I can hear/taste/feel… when I read these words.
  • I could imagine…
  • The sensory language I can hear is… It makes me think of…


Listen to two pieces of classical music, close your eyes and allow your imagination to create an image in your mind that reflects the music.

Just as you can create mental pictures while listening to a piece of music, you can do the same thing when reading a text. You can use the words used by the author to create images of characters, events, topics, or information in your mind.
