Traditional stories, famous tales, personal experience stories and personal imagination stories are a powerful source to develop language learning skills at all levels and ages.
There are good reasons to use stories in the ESL classroom:
- Stories attract the students’ attention
- They are fun
- They are a wonderful tool to practice speaking, listening, reading and writing skills
- They provide a meaningful context for the new vocabulary or grammar topic to be presented or reviewed
- They are good to practice pronunciation, sounds, intonation, and sentence stress.
