This A2 article is based on The Emoji Movie released on 18 October. Gene is an emoji who lives in Textopolis, a digital city inside a smartphone. While all other emojis express only one emotion, he can make ‘the wrong face’ because he was born without a filter, and he is desperate to become ‘normal’. The theme of emojis allows vocabulary recycling and expanding – giving pupils the tools to go beyond “happy” and “sad” –as well as storytelling combining images and words.
