  • This study aimed to investigate the role of storytelling in promoting students’ oral proficiency from the teachers’

    perspectives in Tulkarm District. To achieve this aim, the researchers prepared a 30-item questionnaire which was

    distributed among 50 male and female governmental school teachers, who teach English for Palestine for Grade 11

    in Tulkarm District, during the second semester of the scholastic year 2011–2012. The researchers used different

    statistical procedures which fit the collected data. The results of the study revealed that most of English teachers

    agreed that storytelling plays a remarkable role in promoting the 11th grade students’ oral proficiency in the

    classroom. In the light of these results, the researchers recommended using storytelling to motivate students to

    speak in the classroom, and to conduct studies on digital storytelling as an aid in promoting oral proficiency.
