Engage them with a story – the most involving storytelling techniques

Stories surround us from all sides - books, films, commercials, fairy tales, articles, anecdotes or childhood memories. They can be short, long, simple, complicated and provide a truly flexible source of material for every teacher. Stories can become an ideal introduction to classes, the main topic of the lesson, or an interesting homework task. The workshop shows how story telling can be used to train listening, reading or writing skills, help in discovering such aspects of a language as vocabulary, grammar or pronunciation, and build friendly teacher-student relationships.
