Abstract

Abstract The purpose of the present paper is to outline the rationale for and present the process of introducing an early Foreign Language project based on illustrated stories. The specific story-based project extended in a period of a school year and was implemented to the 1st grade primary classroom, with the purpose to develop children’s oral skills in English as a Foreign Language (EFL), along with enhancing their social skills. An evaluation study revealed the effectiveness and feasibility of the project for very young learners’ development in EFL.
