Improve your English language skills with a story the whole family can enjoy!

Juggling work, family, and studying for English language tests is exhausting.

When you get home from work, you're torn between:

a) Spending time with your family (important)

b) Studying for the exams that will help you give your family a better life (also important).

Now you can have your cake and eat it too!

In this episode of Saturday Stories, you'll meet Rumpelstiltskin (a sneaky guy that can spin straw into gold) in a story appropriate for the whole family.

Listen to this episode, and you'll have something to talk about besides work and depressing news stories!

About this episode:

Although Oscar Wilde wrote this story to be read to children, it’s a great reminder of the consequences of selfishness and the hope found in redemption.  

I hope you’ll be encouraged by the theme of redemption in this story.
