Language is mainly used to tell stories. I don’t have the statistics to back that up, but it seems common-sense true. Also It seems true me a guy with a masters in linguistics.

At any rate, the only way to get good at telling stories -be they about your cat, you girlfriend, you mother or the CIA, is to listen to stories and to tell your own. One tool that can help inspire you and your classmates/friends, is Rory’s Story Cubes. They are a phenomenal language teaching and story telling tool.

To this end, my friend and I featured them on out Podcast for English learners: YabancıTalk. Here, linked for your pleasure:

For more information on Rory’s Story Cube, visit their website! You can buy the cubes on, at local books stores in the US and Europe and even here im my city of Istanbul. I suggest Remzi Kitapevi or Homer Kitapevi
