The Power of Storytelling for Young Learners in the ESL Classroom:
Stories enhance listening skills.
They kindle creativity and imagination.
Stories boost student interest in reading.
They increase focus and concentration.
Storytelling teaches new vocabulary.
Last year, I had the pleasure to present a short storytelling programme at KS Education Center, Dilesi, Voiotia, via Webex, as COVID-19 did not allow us to give live performances.
I must admit that even under these rather peculiar circumstances, we had great fun!
