Online workshops

In response to the coronavirus lockdown, in May and June I have led four online versions of my workshop Using storytelling in the language classroom.

Read some of the feedback.


Methodology workshop

Several participants have asked about a workshop focusing exclusively on methodology (i.e. with no time spent on participants’ storytelling skills).

I would be very happy to lead one. Age-ranges from upper primary (approx. 8-year-olds) to adults. Yes, storytelling covers virtually everyone!

The work will reflect my own 30-odd years teaching in a German secondary school. Read more about that here.

If you would like to join this or another workshop, or have me lead a tailor-made workshop for a group of teachers (min. 4 participants) or an institution, get in touch and we can discuss your needs.


Below is a three-minute introductory video. In practice, each workshop is tailor-made to meet specific needs, but the video gives an idea of what I do.
