Step out of your comfort zone to master your storytelling skills regardless of language boundaries!

We all know the power of stories: they help us learn and remember things, make us laugh, wonder and thrill, and foster our imagination.

But telling them can make many of us feel like a cat on hot bricks, especially in a foreign language! Whether you are a born entertainer or rather keep a low profile, English pushes the envelope.

While mastering all those pitfalls of vocabulary, grammar and tricky pronunciation takes practice, a few hacks and a bit of encouraging feedback can come in really handy!

Who is the workshop for?

This workshop will be the right match for you if:

  • You love stories
  • You wish to improve your speaking and storytelling skills in English
  • You feel somewhat insecure if you have to give a longer monologue or presentation in English
  • You are excited about fun and interactive ways of learning foreign languages
  • English is not your mother tongue but you understand this text with no or just a little help from the translator.

What can you expect?

  • 3 hours of casual learning and fun in a picnic style!
  • Storytelling excercises and hands-on speaking practice
  • Tips on how to open and build a story and create a strong punchline
  • Supportive environment with personalized feedback
  • An easygoing teacher who believes speaking a language should not be a stressful but enjoyable activity
  • Small refreshments (Did I say a “picnic”? So I’ll keep my word!).

How can storytelling skills help you in life?

  • Public presentations: Whenever you have to speak out loud and make a professional impression
  • Company meetings: When you wish your voice to be heard
  • Casual talks with friends: Who doesn’t enjoy a company of a great storyteller?
  • Boosting your confidence while speaking English: Knowing that language is not the limit feels powerful.
  • Fluency and pronunciation: The more you speak, the more natural you will sound.

Practical info

In summer months, if the weather allows, the workshop takes place outside in Kinskeho zahrada, Prague; In case of bad weather we’ll take shelter in Komunitní prostor Smíchov at Santoška (close to Anděl metro station). All the necessary details will be sent to you by e-mail 2-3 days in advance.
