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 will be discussing why and how stories can improve language skills and future skills, and how familiar stories and characters can increase motivation to read.

There are lots of misconceptions about STEAM. When language teachers hear the words “coding”, “algorithm”, “technology”, “engineering” it can sound overwhelming… daunting… even scary. It’s not about teaching a science lesson, or a maths lesson, instead, it’s about integrating an array of concepts that are built into these subjects while teaching English. This session will debunk some myths and reveal the truth behind them through practical examples (from English Code). Doing STEAM is simpler than you think!
