Story-based CLIL for (Very) Young Learners by Sylvie Dolakova

Dear Colleagues,

IATEFL Poland and Sylvie Dolakova, MA, teacher and teacher trainer specializing in teaching English to (very) young learners

have the pleasure to invite you to the webinar which will take place on

Monday, 8th February 2020, between 8:30 and 9:30 CET.

Stories are considered a traditional treasure of each culture. A simple story can cater for all areas of children’s early learning. Children immerse into the topic of the story in every activity they do, they do not need long introduction and motivation at the beginning of each lesson. In them they absorb and compare global perspective of different cultural backgrounds.

Stories offer a large platform of activities that help children to understand, use the phrases from and re-tell their contents. The activities represent a wide scale of games, cards, worksheets and ideas for language development, maths, science, music, art and movement. Children immerse into the story from different angles using effectively all the areas of learning, cultivating language skills, logical thinking, developing executive functions, practising fine motor skills and multisensory perception. 


Possible bilingual approach without direct translation makes learning very efficient.

The project of story activities has been tested in many schools with a very positive feedback from teachers and reported to be significantly time-saving, powerful and accepted by the children with joy.


Recently the project has been awarded Pearson ELT Teachers‘ Innovation Award.

IATEFL Poland members have priority of registration for this webinar.
Do not delay. The number of participants is limited.

After the webinar all participants will receive a certificate of participation.
