March activities for English teachers: practise Writing, Reading and Speaking skills - All levels

Stories inspire, encourage creativity in the classroom, help develop language and uniquely engage both younger and older learners by activating both sides of the brain. Every ELT teacher should be familiar with story-telling techniques, as they allow children to acquire language in a natural, familiar and stress-free context.

This month’s activities have been designed around story-telling – download them here and find out how you can trigger your students’ imagination and help them learn English!
