Abstract

This paper sheds light on how stories can be a successful vehicle to teach young children English as a foreign or second language (EFL/ESL). First, the rationale for using stories in an EFL/ESL classroom will be discussed. Second, the ways that can be adapted to choose stories will be suggested, which will be followed by the techniques that can be exploited to tell stories with/ to young children. Finally, some activities on what to do after telling a story will be presented and a conclusion will be drawn.
