The Comenius Summer Course in Glasgow Using Storyline for Teaching ESL
During the first week in August, a group of international primary teachers met in Strathclyde University, Glasgow, to find out more about the Storyline approach and its use in teaching English as a Second Language. In this special environment, we created the Storyline “Capital Tours”, in which our families “travelled” to different European capitals: Rome, Paris and London. The creative work on the Storyline made it easy to relate it to our different classroom situations and to pack a suitcase full of new ideas. Many thanks to Gisela Ehlers, Hannelore Tait and Steve Bell, who presented an eventful, motivating and unforgettable week for the group. Working on the Storyline in this warm and inspiring atmosphere was great fun and helped create family-bonds for life.
