Our English Through Drama courses and workshops are completely tailored to the needs of each group. Sessions can vary in length from one hour to a full day (5 hours), and be run on a one-off or regular basis.
When planning sessions, we take both the age of the students and their English proficiency level into consideration. We use the CEFR standard (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages) to set the basic structure of our sessions. We offer classes for all levels from pre-A1 to C2 and ages 3-18.
Classes use a range of activities to improve retention through kinaesthetic learning and contextualisation. Games and exercises range from simple action games for basic vocabulary, to storytelling activities for practising tenses. One of our favourite activities is ‘The Interview’, a drama game that requires teams to create a character while taking a closer look at sentence structure!
Ultimately, our goal is to help students engage with language in a new and enjoyable way so they can improve their understanding and confidence. While our English Through Drama sessions are all unique and tailored to the group, they all have one thing in common – they take the stress out of language learning and encourage the students to have fun!
