Learning English Through Stories with Disney Kids Readers

Presenter(s): Rachel Wilson

There is a growing understanding of the role that stories can play in learning English. Stories are highly enjoyable, and used correctly, they provide young learners with language input at the right level, they promote opportunities for interaction, and they build skills in all four areas: reading, listening, speaking, and writing. Furthermore, themes in stories can build critical thinking skills, and allow learners to explore their values and their place in the world.

In this webinar, Rachel discusses why and how stories can improve language skills and future skills, and how familiar stories and characters can increase motivation to read.
