On completion of the course, students should be able to:
1. appreciate picture books;
2. tell stories skillfully in public;
3. be familiar with some popular stories and nursery rhymes; and
4. create their own picture books.
This theme-based course is designed for students with intermediate and above levels of English language proficiency. It aims to kindle their interest in English learning by sharing their personal experiences, expressing their points of view, reading picture books, reciting nursery rhymes, telling stories and creating their own picture books. Picture books are used to give students more practice at listening, speaking, reading and writing, as well as to stimulate their imagination, creativity and critical thinking ability. The course will help students to build up their English communicative competence, develop their positive attitude towards English learning, understand some cross-cultural concepts, and learn how to tell stories in English.
