Last week Sara McFadden brought her father, Jack McFadden, to the Nashville StoryBooth for a StoryCorps interview. Though visiting family in the states right now, Sara normally lives in Venezuela, where she teaches English as a second language. Sara told us that she and her adult ESL students listen to StoryCorps clips regulary via the StoryCorps website. Afterward, they discuss the interviews aloud to practice comprehension and spoken skills.
Sara is excited to share her StoryCorps experience with her students when she returns to Venezuela. She even took several StoryCorps buttons as souvenirs for her class.
