Hughes, Annie

This paper sets out to show: (1) Teachers of English to young learners need to support their learners' general cognitive development and learning along with language learning; (2) The use of stories has a very important role in teaching English to young learners (TEYL); (3) The use of stories and books can provide scaffolding for our young language learners in order to allow for acquisition of the target language in a meaningful and cognitively supportive way; (4) The use of stories and books can be used to encourage our young learners to create more stories and books in the target language; and (5) Young language learners can develop a focused and detailed understanding of language through interaction with stories and books.
