Collaborative idea generation for ELT

Roald Dahl

I picked up this bookmark on a recent visit to the Seven Stories museum of children’s books with Lizzie Pinard. We spent a brilliant two hours there, and I would highly recommend it to anyone in or around Newcastle-upon-Tyne, UK.

  1. I would ask my seven-year-old daughter to come to class with me. I would ask her to lend her Roald Dahl box set, which we’ve nearly finished -just The Witches and George’s Marvellous Medicine to go- to the class for three months. I’d set up a lending scheme and let the learners take a book each.
    Why? Because Roald Dahl is a writer to let in the love of reading into non-readers lives. He writes plainly but his stories appeal to everyone. I would hope that between us, my daughter and I can persuade people that children’s literature is a brilliant way to start reading in another language, whether you’re seven or seventy.
