Thank you for the welcome, Lois. I first got turned on to storytelling in business based on the work of Milton Erickson, who was the model for NLP. I've been using the method for 32 years, and I can always tell that people get far more from my stories than they do from straight lecture. I'll check out the Stories for Business group. Warm regards, Jim
you are right,I am a english translator,I obtained my bachelor’s degree in translation. I am currently a MA student in Teaching English as a Foreign languages. In a festival called ''Mothers as a storyteller''I obtained the first grade.I try to connect my education with telling story,because I am interested in both of them.I think someone as an storyteller needs to be beside of an english teacher.He can use his art in improving learning english.In most of the classes teachers plays the role of storyteller but it is not correct.because most of them don't know any things about the techniques of telling story,in addition the purpose of the telling story by teacher is teaching but the purpose of telling story by story teller is enjoying.Through telling story by storyteller,learnrs learn indirectly and this is the art of storyteller.
his art in improving learning english.
Thank you, Lois. Its great being a part of Professional Storyteller. My friend Asha Sampath introduced me to this page. I love the feeling that I am connected to storytellers all over the world! Its great that we can learn from each other here!
Thank you very much Lois! It is wonderful being here...grateful thanks to Kamini Ramachandran for introducing me to this page and the administrators of this page for accepting me! I am excited and keen to learn and share all about storytelling! Will definitely tell others too!
thank you so much for the warm welcome and the information and suggestions. I look forward to becoming a part of the Storytelling community. As I am new to all of this and frankly feel quite isolated from all the festivals and workshops I have been discovering I am hoping the information I gather and friends and contacts I hope to make through the site will bring me a little closer :)
Sorry to take so long to click the friend button. Haven't been on the site for awhile. It's always good to hear any advice you have, my wife and I are working more and more with puppets along with our storytelling and music.
Thank you for the warm welcome Lois. Buck suggested that I check out this site, and I can already see that I will be very glad that I did. I will spend some time over the next week understanding the layout and get involved.
