English through storytelling
This workshop offers the chance for secondary students to improve their English by hearing Richard tell stories and learning to tell stories themselves.
During the workshop students:
- hear tales to laugh at, tales to wonder at — and perhaps to make their blood run cold
- learn and practise practical storytelling skills — excellent training for presentations
- take part in speaking and writing activities generated by the stories
The length of these workshops can vary between half a day and three days.
This, like the content, is always tailored to the requirements of the individual group and the school.
