HOW HAS IT ALL STARTED?

Mary was 18 when she first visited England. She rang the bell at her host family. Anthea opened the door, welcomed Mary in, and - as any good host would do - started chatting, wanting to know all about Mary. After all, she was going to look after her little boy. Dialogue, however, turned into a nightmare. Mary, with all her excellent grades in English, couldn’t put together a sensible sentence. Her brain was a whirlwind with all the learnt facts spinning in her mind, completely useless for communication. It took her a week to overcome self-consciousness. And another week to unlearn the "learnt-by-heart", to forget ABOUT the language and start USING it. Back home, she came to one single conclusion: Don't teach the language. Use it. Learning it comes as a side effect. And the Project-Base Approach was born. The magic is in the stories. Picture Books, to be precise. Every school year for her was a new story she created with children. Not only her pupils benefit from her teaching. She learnt from them. Like, a lot. She opened children's imagination wide and in return, children shared theirs with her. Her imagination prospered. And one day, unplanned, spontaneously, and quite unexpectedly, she realised she became a storywriter herself. Teaching through stories has made her grow: personally, and professionally. Has boosted her imagination, built up her confidence. 'Cause that's how much power the stories have. If you use them as stories. That’s what her courses are all about. If you want to make your teaching a story, you have all you need within your grasp. All is provided for you, but the courage to go for it. That one's on you. Would you like to join me?
