I have an exciting opportunity to help out with a programme using stories to help teach english to non english speaking adults. If anyone has any leads for stories that they think would be good in this kind of environment (where I've been told some participants won't speak a word of english) I'd love to hear about them. Thanks

It improves his/her critical thinking and comprehension.Our sessions are very dynamic with a rich treasure of stories from Indian mythology to Western and Arabian tales. And our experiences with the children who have already attended our sessions is very satisfying mutually. These sessions in which stories are told to children can also be structured to involve related activities like games, craft, art and origami.

Hi, I'm also teaching at primary school. Any good stories to tell at primary level at a bilingual school? Are you all natives?
