Storytelling is the ancient form of education whose appeal has been rediscovered in modern times. Cultures told tales to pass down beliefs to future generations. Stories capture learners’ imaginations, emotions, minds and heart. Storytelling sparks learners’ interests; aids flow of classes; makes material memorable; overcomes anxiety and builds good rapport.
