Short stories are great for learning English. Especially mini-stories with “the listen and answer method” will help you to improve your English skills fast. The traditional methods such as “repeat after me” are useless. Because you repeat the sentences like a parrot as they are. But listen and answer method is different. It trains your brain to use the sentences properly and automatically.
In this point, repetition is very important. You should listen to the stories repeatedly and try to answer all questions out loud. These are very easy questions and they help you to master vocabulary and sentences so that you will use them automatically. Now watch our short story lesson video below and you will find the practice section after the story.

Why are stories powerful? Stories are ancient. (Ancient means very very old) for thousands of years, humans learned through stories. Before writing, people learned history, science, and religion with stories. (also see: Storytelling to learn English)
Reason number 1: stories are very easy to remember. Stories give context to information. Context means a natural situation a connection. In other words, the information in a story is connected. For example, new vocabulary is connected to the characters, the action, the images in the story. You don’t learn the new word alone. You learn the new English word connected to the story. When you think of the new word you can imagine the part of the story it is connected to. So you remember new English vocabulary much faster when you learn it from a story. The same is true with English grammar and pronunciation.
Reason 2: Stories are naturally emotional. Even a simple story has some emotion. Stories can be funny, scary, surprising, frustrating, happy. And when we connect emotion to information, we learn English faster and we remember it longer.
Reason 3: Stories are more interesting and enjoyable. Because stories have emotion, characters, conflict (that mean fighting or struggle or difficulty) they are naturally interesting to us. Obviously, it is much more fun to listen to a story than to study a textbook. Because it’s more fun you want to do it more often and for a longer time. With stories you listen longer and more often, learn faster, remember longer and enjoy it more. That’s why listening to stories is the best way to learn English.
