Story telling


MEC Training Coordinator, Steph Earnshaw, writes:

Getting your learners to tell stories is a great way of engaging your learners and encouraging them to practise their speaking and writing skills.

Here are some really nice ideas from Teaching English on how to get your students to tell a good story. There are lots of suggested sources of inspiration for the stories and to add to that you might want to use a MEC News Item or pictures from any of the MEC resources as inspiration for you learners’ stories.

There’s also a great level 5/6 two-part listening activity on MEC in which learners match sections of the story with definitions, then match specific features with extracts from the story.

To find it, just go to the Word & Phrase search and type in ”How to tell a story”.

Remember to use inverted commas otherwise you will bring up a huge list of resources rather than just the resource you are looking for.
