Story Telling

Storytelling is one of the oldest forms of communication and has been used for centuries to transmit knowledge, share cultural values, and provide entertainment. There are various types of stories that have been told over the years such as myths, legends, folk tales, fairy tales, and short stories.

The most important aspect about storytelling is that it helps people to understand a particular situation better by providing context about what happened in the past or what might happen in the future.
