Once Upon a Time: Storytelling to Learn English

About Once Upon a Time: Storytelling to Learn English

Stories can teach language. Join a professional storyteller to find out how stories can teach, develop, and provide practice for English language learning. We’ll learn several storytelling genres, traditional, personal, and extended stories. FInd out how to use the stories of your childhood with your own personal stories and how to expand them to an audience. We’ll use many storytelling techniques to practice, improve, and create with English language skills. The storytelling craft has many ways to tell stories that are helpful in learning a language, such as retelling, pair/share, changing the ending, or telling from a character’s viewpoint.

It is an ideal class whatever your level of English language acquisition, from beginners and intermediate to advanced.
