I believe storytelling is a very powerful teaching resource for young learners. They feel comfortable with it, and when they read or listen to a story they stop caring about “understanding every single word" of it.

Not to mention, makes learning downright more enjoyable!

I have used Storytelling with 15-year olds!  They also loved it.  If you get your students to write their stories directed towards young children, it helps them to use simple vocabulary and structures which is great writing practice for them.  Afterwards they can share them on a wiki/blog/moodle site.  Very rich! I'm attaching two examples of my students' stories.

"Free online foreign language lessons"

 

Shona Whyte:

Suspicious as usual, I checked out this site.  Not clear who is behind it, but it does seem to be completely free and the sound etc works fine.  I checked English for French beginners (leçon de Anglaise (sic)) - behaviourist approach with exercises for listening and repeating, matching phrases with their translation equivalents, and chances to test yourself.  Not my first choice for learning a language, but it may suit some.
