What Poetry and Folktales offer to ELT: HCT Context (PP95), Paper

In this paper, literary texts are implemented in teaching English to the Foundation Program students at the English Language Centre at the Higher College of Technology to respond to the studies that advocate utilizing literature, namely poetry and folktales, into English language learning classrooms. We assume using literature as a mean to learning a second language can ease the process of learning by increasing students’ level of engagement and motivation with the content.
