Story-Asking, Storytelling And Teaching With Comprehensible Input: From Research To Practice
Story-asking and story-telling are powerful second language teaching techniques that are based on the importance of teaching language through Comprehensible Input. Research in second language acquisition has shown that language is acquired through compelling, personalized, contextualized and comprehensible aural input. Teaching with comprehensible input allows us to conduct our class almost entirely in the target language from day one, basing our lessons on student interest, while maintaining an enjoyable and stress-free environment.
