ABSTRACT Authentic pictures or drawings from the target culture provide the illustrations for Christmas and greeting cards teachers and students can make. New copy machines make copies hardly distinguishable from the original. They can reduce an easily made original to an excellent copy—on card stock if desired. Students of any age, but especially young bilingual-bicultural students enjoy coloring the illustrations in vivid, authentic hues. The finished cards prove so attractive that students find them easy to sell to support language club projects. However, perhaps the greatest strength derives from the excitement language students feel creating something that is valued by family and friends, and that reflects another dimension of the target culture.
