Enhancing EFL Learners' Competence through Short Stories: A Study in Four Colleges
Adam, Mohammed Marajan Awad
Advances in Language and Literary Studies, v4 n1 p154-160 Jan 2013
In the current dynamics of world communication, the ability to use English functionally is increasing exponentially given the conception of the world as a global village. In the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, however, the EFL teaching community has much to desire as far as the learners' English proficiency go. Literature forms a very minuscule component in the curriculum whereas story telling as pedagogy in EFL learning is proven to be effective in various other EFL environments. This paper is an empirical study of the usefulness of this method in KSA with the aim to encourage its adoption by the teaching community.
