TELLING A STORY
Language is wine upon the lips. – Virginia Woolf
When you are learning a language, remember to slow down and enjoy the process. The language itself is often as enjoyable as the end goal.
How to Tell a Good Story
If the choice is between being idle as before or doing your English, there is no contest for you now. I love encounters like this – they are not only doing wonders, but rather being them as well. Really, I do imagine how exhausted were you with all these schools and techniques and trends – and with rather poor results. OK, let it be – we’ll fail together, and we’ll fail better!
I created the blog just to recover myself and resurrect my dreams to become a real little corpuscle of the huge English World. This is a friend – mine and yours, as well as a mini-support system. System that won’t let you down.
There are several ways how to write a good story, and I think they are worth examining.
In the mainstream… Please, click on the link under the picture of the Sculpture Under The Sky – here you’ll meet... the Oxford Language School teachers – young and professional, they’ll show you how to do it properly – in the classic way. I would be glad to become a ‘classic story-teller’ myself… but my opinion is that it is very well, but such an approach seems to be somehow … uncool. Suppose I’m not being a bitch… A matter of taste…
Here is the known “jam technique” – a nice possibility to try your sand watch. As a matter of fact, mine, having sand enough only for three minutes, has to be turned over trice. You know, here jam is not the usually stolen stuff from the mother jar – I’m sorry, but it’s simply “just-a-minute” technique…
So, you have a theme, a watch, and only one minute. Try to remember all the words connected with your theme, breath in deeply, and… retell during the given minute all that you can and know about the theme. Do not stop until you time has gone like sand in your watch… Now you have three minutes to write down your key-words, your thoughts, some coherent sentences… Ready? There’s your second minute! Retell your theme, but do it more consciously, more coherent, like a text, not disconnected words, as it could be before…
Now you have again three minutes – improve your grammar, sentences structure, maybe insert quotations of any famous people – they always sound wisely, and sometimes are very much in the right place, you know… OK, now it’s your last minute… Ready, steady, go! Congratulations! In this game for one ‘beautiful you’ You were the best!
Imagine that you have encountered some old times letter, or … you have read a passage from some unknown novel, but... there’s no beginning… and no ending… What was the tale of the story? AND WHAT HAPPENED NEXT? Who are the main heroes? And what was the climax of the story? Imagine this is a picture describing the story. Who is who here? Why do you think so? And – Oh, at last! Philologist PARADISE! Because – Why? Did? The Author? Put THIS WORD in THAT PLACE? What did he want to bring to us, Readers? Don’t you think it’s interesting? Or – This Is The NOW – time when the language itself is “as enjoyable as the end goal”? So, “slow down!’ and “enjoy the process”!
