English around us

A world of words


“Stories are used to pass on accumulated wisdom, beliefs, and values. Through stories we explain how things are, why they are, and our role and purpose. Stories are the building blocks of knowledge, the foundation of memory and learning. Stories connect us with our humanness and link past, present, and future by teaching us to anticipate the possible consequences of our actions”. (A definition by NSA)

And probably we all remember those stories which someone told us at bedtime.

International Day of the Book and Anniversary of the deaths of Miguel de Cervantes and William Shakespeare.
