I wanted to share a bit of the sources I used to make a paper for the English Teacher Training College.Unfortunately, I could not upload the paper but as soon as I know how to do it  I will upload it . Meanwhile, I will upload some links from where I got ( and I am still getting...) information about ADHD ( studies on ADHD + notions )  (basic notions in Spanish) ( ADHD to medicate or not?) ( this is my favourite video as it is simple and it goes straight to the point)

Figurative language

Figurative language is the use of words or phrases in a manner where the literal meaning of the words is not true or does not make sense, but "implies a non-literal meaning which does make sense or that could be true".
You can use videos or songs to show your students that these devices do not just appear in poems, they can also be found  in films or songs....
Hope you enjoy it!!!
