Storytelling – the key to developing speaking skills with young learners
Stories are a fascinating way to teach young learners and to get them interested in using a new code for communicating, such as a foreign language. This presentation looks into some pedagogical and methodological implications of using storytelling techniques for developing children’s linguistic skills at a very early stage of their second language acquisition. Participants will be offered practical ideas and demonstrations for exploiting short picture stories and building pupils’ confidence for using the foreign language in oral communication.
Active learning – the gateway to successful teaching
The presentation exploits some aspects of the concept of Active Learning, with the purpose of promoting this approach in Foreign Language Teaching and Learning. It looks into various teaching tools that involve students’ pro-active participation in class. It also promotes the use of educational technologies for encouraging students to take an active role in educational processes that take place outside the classroom. The teacher’s role for motivating students and getting them to learn together is considered crucial in applying Active Learning Strategies.
