In fact, the psychological aspects of utilizing cartoons as teaching materials have been emphasized by many researchers. In the same line, the present paper aims at further highlighting the pedagogical value of cartoons particularly for low level language learners. As a matter of fact, cartoons are good sources of modified language input which although may require less cognitive processing for comprehension, they may include new aspects of the language for low level language learners who have not acquired them yet.
