Storytelling – good way to teach English for kids

From the unit of last week, I knew more a method to teach children this is storytelling. I think this is good way to teach English for kids. Because the stories usually are short, they talk about us life. All of the stories have happy ending. So it is easy to remember for children. Storytelling helps children to develop listening skill when they listen, speaking skill when they talk together and teacher. After listening storytelling it also help them to develop imagination of children.

In Vietnam, there are problem teachers have when they teach English in general and teach storytelling in particular. This is new words, culture, voice or pronunciation… If teacher incorrectly pronounce children also certainly incorrectly pronounce, too. For example, when I was 1 grad, my teacher lisped. Thus, all of pupils in my class also lisped. It is very difficult to correct when I am an adult. So teacher’s pronunciation is very important to teach children.

After I watched videos of “Motivating learning” I learned more how to attract children when I teaching. In my opinion, teacher must be warm-up to children focus their attention in class before teaching. Using software to support own lesson such as power point to show pictures and something…, using software Violet to make exercise after children listen a story.
