Drama for Teens – in English!
Drama and Improvisation classes are traditionally a fun way to start learning about theatre technique, along with building creativity and everyday confidence. Participating in a drama class in a foreign language will of course be different – it does, however, offer an alternative step in advancing your spoken English.
Perhaps one of the hardest steps when learning a new language is gaining the ability to use it in a natural situation – it can be challenging to think of words and phrases ‘on the spot’. Improvisation and drama techniques provide a forum to strengthen new language connections and build the ability to speak confidently – come and let creativity take you to the next level of your English learning!
What type of exercises would we do in a session?
– Real to life role-play scenarios, for ‘on the spot’ thinking and speaking, and vocab and grammar practice (character types can be added for dramatic fun!).
– Short simple scripts, to build understanding of word and sentence structure, and for speech rhythm and body language.
– tongue twisters and vocal exercises, to wake up the new face and mouth muscles which are needed to aid pronunciation!
What level of English do I need to have?
A solid beginner to intermediate level would be beneficial – but whatever your level, a willingness to attempt (make mistakes!), practice and progress will be best.
