This is the second of the Walt Disney Series. My aim is to make reading the work easy and to facilitate true comprehension of the story. Thus the linguistic abilities of my students can be improved. To make communication better, both written and spoken, I use various tools, in and off the classroom. Please go through these slides and watch the video and send me a write up on the work.
