Testing Course: Learning through Stories

Testing Course: Learning through Stories

In traditional African society, storytelling served as the primary means of transmitting knowledge from one generation to the next. Today, the enduring power of storytelling is recognized as a valuable tool for learning. The collection of stories is curated to enhance learning enjoyably and engagingly. Each topic concludes with quizzes to assess learners' understanding and reinforce key concepts, aiding retention and real-life application.


The stories are designed as supplementary material for various occasions, such as after school, weekends, school holidays, or exam revision. They serve as an effective way to reinforce classroom learning and improve language skills in a relaxed setting.


Given the importance of English in education, trade, diplomacy, and social networking, the collection emphasizes the significance of a strong foundation in English. In Kenya, where English is the official language and medium of instruction from Grade Four onwards, proficiency in English is crucial for effective communication on national and global levels.


The core belief is that developing oral, reading, and writing competencies in English is essential for functioning competently in diverse communicative contexts. The overarching goal is to prepare learners for success both within and beyond the classroom by promoting values such as peace, love, unity, and respect for various individuals and groups.
