概要 The Simpsons television series is a treasure trove of resource material for the ESL/EFL classroom. It contains everything from low-brow slapstick humour to literary social satire. It includes references to major literary works, pop songs, movies, and numerous other cultural markers. A Simpsons episode "is a text that most of our students will encounter and some will pursue regularly, owing to screen culture and the place of television in their lives" (Doyle 1999). It is a medium in which most students can connect with and enjoy. The Simpsons can be used in a number of ways to focus on particular language targets or specific topics.
