A visual way for language teachers to introduce new vocabulary and concepts to their students. Vidtionary defines and expresses the words using images. I think it could be a great success in the ESL or EFL classroom.
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.
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.
