Storytelling, the art of narrating a tale from memory rather than reading it is one of the oldest of all art forms, reaching back to prehistoric times. Storytelling involves two elements – selection and delivery. Many EFL teachers are interested in storytelling as a resource in teaching. A successful storyteller chooses adequate stories and must be a good performer, for the delivery is crucial and requires both preparation and rehearsal. Storytelling is the original form of teaching and has the potential of fostering emotional intelligence and help the child gain insight into human behaviour. Storytelling also promotes language learning by enriching learners’ vocabulary and acquiring new language structures. Moreover, storytelling can provide a motivating and lowanxiety context for language learning. The storytelling tips given in this article are meant to help the teacher–as–storyteller as s/he prepares for a storytelling "performance" for students.
