Story-based approach: exploring the world of stories with your young learners
by Chiyuki Yanase

In this workshop, we will explore how story-based approach can develop essential language learning skills of young learners as well as explore a number of storytelling styles and story-based activities. Participants will also be invited to develop their own story-based lessons using a picture book.

It is hoped that participants go on to use these ideas in their classes to facilitate their students’ language acquisition in a pleasurable and creative learning environment.
