Author name: Iryna Skibenko

Coming from Ukraine, I have travelled to around 20 countries. I am the author of 3 adventure stories for children (9-11 yrs old) with 17 years of teaching experience of the English Language. I graduated from Donetsk National University with Master's Degree in the English Language and Literature. 1 year ago, I founded Smart Story Space, where children master their English through reading my adventure stories and writing their own stories. My students come from different countries, so they have a maximum exposure to communication with foreigners. By creating and sharing their stories with each other they gradually gain more confidence, find their voice and become global citizens.
