DESCRIPTION

The S.T.O.R.Y. is the practical, dynamic and 100% contextual training method I created for English students. It's based on 5 key aspects of a learner's communication experience (Situation. Time. Objective. Recognition. You). I train learners to naturally acquire structures, pronunciation and vocabulary by first understanding the context of the communication experience. Young children learn their first language contextually. So do people who recently arrived in a new country. Now, its your turn.
