The power of storytelling

Debbie West


Storytelling is communication and it continues to bring us a new beginning. Storytelling can bring a new perspective to all that we do in language teaching whether our learners are students or business people. In this talk/workshop we will look at the power of storytelling and reflect on how we can encourage each of our stories as well as those of our learners.


Debbie West, UC Berkeley grad, brought up in a military family, has done almost everything from teaching French to being International Student Advisor in the United States to now teaching English to all levels and ages here in France. With a love for developing programs and an ever-present bank of ideas, there never seems to be enough time, energy and money to do everything. Being single helps and sometimes doesn't. She tries to do her part in developing people's English skills.
