Sharing Stories – Sharing Understanding. End of Project Celebration.

We are very proud of our participants at yesterday’s storytelling end of project celebration. Many thanks to Carl Gough from World of Connections, NIACE and Beyond The Border for providing these engaging and fun activities for us at UiD. We are very happy to have had so many people participating in the storytelling sessions and preparation lessons. Enormous respect for those that got up and told stories so well and importantly in a language other than their own. The outcomes have been fantastic with tangible evidence of improving English language skills and self-confidence. Something that has echoed throughout are the connections made between cultures and our collective love/need for stories. We have learnt so much about each other’s backgrounds, absolutely fantastic.

Many many thanks to all involved, especially the brave folks that got up and gave it their all at yesterday’s event. The feedback was excellent – we are very proud indeed.

Good weather makes for great games

We are very happy to say that the football training sessions are in full swing now. The improving weather means we are getting high numbers which makes for more fun!!

Storytelling – feedback from participants

Please take a moment to listen to participants at UiD talking about our current storytelling project. 

Building Stories, Vocabulary and Confidence

A great storytelling workshop with Carl Gough and the folks at UiD this evening. An excellent vocabulary building exercise using our imaginations to populate a very interesting story of our own. The feedback from these activities has been very positive. Many see it as a way of bridging the gap of not only language, but culture also. We’ve learned many things about each other’s traditions and the similarities and shared respect for storytelling. Many people are now getting up and sharing their stories which is greatly enjoyed by the group. Please enjoy this visual summary 😉
