Body Parts Storytelling

I want to underline this, showing this very nice video of storytelling with kids (the story is about snow man). You can write teaching instead of storytelling too, it is the same to me.
Speaking to kids means doing this.
Look at this smart storyteller/teacher: she is 'down' with them, at their level, watching things with their wonderful and precious point of view.
This is the way making stories become something alive.

Mandarin Chinese Storytelling through Comic Strips

I am happy to restart the new year with a very nice and funny way to teach Mandarin Chinese with storytelling videos, using simple Comic Strips by Chenny Lim.
Video after description: If you want to have excellent foreign language skills you need to focus on studying Phrase, not individual word or vocabulary. I'd like to let you know how I learned foreign languages such as English, Chinese and Japanese. I'm Korean for your information.
