      Hi Kathy. I’m very interested in talking stories. However, i feel that Audrey’s accent makes it very difficult to understand what is required. Perhaps she should slow down a bit and focus. She is very helpful. i dont mean to hurt anyone’s feelings. we basically working our way through talking stories and find it useful to use with our learners. thanks for a wonderful program

    18. Very Impressive!!! The children thoroughly enjoy it … and so do I! Looking forward to weekly khanya lessons and hopefully ever increasing literacy scores!

    23. Very impressive. The four steps to success are very helpful. I will definitely send the Ten Tips to the parents. My learners are already covering the books that they will take home for reading.

    24. Talking Stories is a grand way to install knoledge in an empty brain.

      Very interesting. My learners enjoy reading the stories and complete the activities. An excellent programme.

    27. It took much concentration to focus on the talking stories workshop after school. We were very challenged by being taught by someone with a french accent. I look forward to introducing my learners to the karaoke -style stories (Jack’s first day) where the words appear on the screen and the sounds are heard via the headphones.
