Course description

Drama activities have been used to teach foreign languages for a very long time and yet they are still sometimes viewed as something which is just for the high achievers and the extroverts. In fact, drama as a tool for learning is something that can be incorporated into almost every class, and it doesn’t necessarily require acting skills, or lots of time or practice. But its potential to promote learning is high. It’s a great way to bring to life the language in the coursebook and to make it meaningful and memorable, and on top of this it’s fun. This six-day course for practising language teachers will equip teachers with the skills and knowledge to conduct drama activities with the students they teach in their own contexts.

It will focus on key drama and language learning activities such as mime, improvisation activities, and creating and performing a script. At the same time it will explore how these activities can provide a motivating and learning rich route into second language development.  The course will end with a performance of what has been worked on. No previous experience of drama or acting is required in order to take part in the course.
