In the DVD, I saw that teachers always discribes the story or raises the exciting atmosphere at the begining of telling to ensure all student are understand and make the stories interesting. Some ways to begin the story are asking students some questions about the story, guessing the order of story, repeat new vocabularies. All teacher use clear, difference voices and delivery vary the page. The language is also clear and simple to make the stories easy to understand. The teachers make eye contact with student. Moreover, the teachers also use stress, emphasis… During tell story, teacher involves students in role play activity. The Korea teacher uses the toy to support the story. All that things make students are confident and excited. An other way is ask students to act some action in the story. Beside that teacer always checks that students are following thje story.
