You can use our stories to help pupils build their confidence in speaking the target language.
When I use the stories in class, I remind pupils about some of the key sounds and then ask pupils to read aloud.
This is great for pronunciation and pupils quickly realise that they can do it. They quickly feel more comfortable speaking in German, French or Spanish.
There are lots of other potential activities you can create using the stories. For example pupils can act out scenes or just a couple of the conversational parts. Then they can try to make up their own version.
