Why Are Storybooks Widely Used in TEYL?
In Teaching English to Young Learners (TEYL), most teachers use storybooks for a number of purposes, e.g. pleasure, fun, learning how to read, and language learning.
When Will Storybooks Be of Special Value in TEYL?
Not all storybooks are good for language learning. So, it is imperative that you choose the best ones that can offer language learning opportunities and develop other skills along the way.
When you choose the right storybooks, apply the right strategies, and children do the story-based activities effectively, the stories will be of special pedagogical value for foreign language learning. In this case, the children will be able to achieve the learning objectives with ease and comfort. Moreover, young learners will enjoy learning the language. So, there should be a plan to use stories perfectly within English classes.
