From a three-hour workshop at the Gymnasium der Franziskaner, Hall, Austria in March 2013

My second visit to this school in North Tyrol, and the teacher asked me to offer a workshop combining storytelling with a wider focus on communication skills.
This was partly in preparation for their class trip to stay with families in Cambridge the following month.

In this photo the students had all promised not to give me rabbit's ears - and I believed them. Clearly their communication skills were excellent!

After demonstration, discussion and analysis, time for students to apply this in partner work.

Sometimes this was dramatic ...

... sometimes more relaxed.

Sometimes close ...

... but always communicative.
