However, the process of teaching English in elementary schools becomes problematic today.

In regard to the issue, this community service project was designed to upgrade the teachers ability in designing English short stories book as their teaching material as well as teaching the stories in the classrooms. In addition, the teachers were also expected to be able to include local wisdom in their short stories.
