At ISTEK ELT, we will be very fortunate to watch one of the most well-known contemporary storeytellers: Jan Blake. She has been a storyteller since 1986 with a great number of awards for her amazing work, the latest being in 2012, when she was named Outsatnding Female Storyteller by the British Awards for Storytelling Excellence.

Her keynote plenary, They Don’t Care About the Vocabulary, They Care About the Characters, will delve into what children need from stories in order to grasp the language.

Watch her in action in this video, where she tells the story of The Leopard Woman:
