IMG_1321 [1024x768]

Lingva in-house workshop No. 19 in the school year 2013/2014 was the first in a series of events aimed at revitalising teaching of language skills by introducing colourful media and new technologies. Most of the lesson plans were based on exploiting stories, starting from Celtic tales to comic strip legends to contemporary short stories for children and adults. All of these stories were accompanied with strong visual elements, either in the form of picture books, old paintings and photographs or flash cards. In some presentations, teachers demonstrated how to integrate reading with the skills of listening and speaking, and in others how the reading texts could be analyzed for review writng or serve as models for creative story telling and writing.
