Oral Competency Through Storytelling

Digital Format Available


- OUTLINE -

NEW! DIGITAL FORMAT AVAILABLE TO SCHOOLS
___________________________________________

Storytelling is an effective strategy to increase language proficiency. As the learning of a language is more effective in contexts, stories are meaningful vehicles that carry vocabulary, sentence structures and grammar rules to young learners. As the children listen to the nuances of the language, they will also appreciate the beauty of the sound of the language. A good story will also engage critical thinking and promote understanding of people, culture or ideas. The trainer will demonstrate effective storytelling skills and inspire the children to emulate and work hard to achieve competency in communicating a short story to friends in class. The trainer will also use cooperative learning strategies to engage the auditory, visual and kinaesthetic learners.

This programme is now adapted to the digital format of the following:

1. Allow students to view the selected session through an online link to watch in the classrooms/during home-based learning accompanied by resource materials

Or

2. Allow students to join the instructor for selected storytelling sessions in the classroom/ during home-based lessons using a video conferencing tool. Students can then engage in interactive and synchronous learning.
