World Stories

'World Stories' is our nomination for October's primary website of the month.  'World Stories' is a growing collection of stories from around the world. The collection includes retold traditional tales and new short stories in the languages ranging from Akan to Yoruba, and including community languages alongside modern languages.

In addition to the mp3 audio files and texts in the target language that are freely available to download, there is also a dedicated 'Teaches and families section'. It is free to register for this area of the 'World Stories' website. Once registered teachers and parents can access advice, guides and plans on how to make the most of the stories, as well as specific help for using the story resources with EAL and ASN learners.

You can even write your own stories, picture and poems for display in the 'World Stories Gallery' blog.'
