Gifu JALT:

Stories that don't begin with 'Once upon a time'

Date: Saturday, September 20th, 2008 Time: 7:00 PM - 8:45 PM

Speaker: Bob Jones, REJ English House

Andrew Wright says, 'Go to any pub or party and you will hear a constant babble of stories. The whole world is full of storytellers.' In this presentation, we will look at some of the typical structural and lexical features of the type of stories that adults tell each other in conversation. We will then consider how we can make our students more aware of these features and how we can train them to become more fluent and effective as conversational storytellers.
