Storytelling as a teaching method is at the heart of Letterland

Storytelling with Letterland expands from the passive role of children listening to stories and absorbing what they hear about the characters (A) to becoming more actively involved by discussing and describing the images they see (V) and then including movement and drama (K) to provide a multi-sensory VAK approach. Letterland’s story logic draws on the children’s thinking skills and imagination to encourage them to remember spelling patterns using phonic fables.
Olga Lavernova
Children with learning difficulties may succeed in a multi-sensory EFL class
Teaching EFL to young children who have difficulties reading, whatever their educational needs, builds from the multi-sensory approach that comes with the interactive storytelling. The presentation will show how Letterland teaching strategies based on neuropsychology ensure that every child succeeds.

How I teach with Letterland – practical teacher cases
Oksana Yaverbaum
How we make teaching Young Learners EFL remotely (online) effective
Letterland’s use of characters to transfer abstract alphabet shapes into human-like figures taps into a wide range of attention-holding strategies which help capture children’s imagination and motivate their learning. Our teachers have proved that this works both in classroom settings and using online resources. However remote teaching is different from teaching in a classroom and offers challenges which we will talk about and suggest practical solutions for online teaching.
