This course has been expanded to combine Levels 1 & 2 for a 12-week comprehensive course to include brand new sessions and revised and updated material across the board..

Effective use of role play to develop speaking skills
Embodying language-pronunciation and intonation
Embodying language-grammar.

In the second half of the course we will cover lesson planning-incorporating drama effectively into the curriculum blending theory with practice, but will also include more specific topics such as:
Teaching skills through drama (reading, writing, listening, speaking)
Specific groups or learner needs, e.g. Business English

Each workshop will be highly interactive, blending theory and practice to instill a sense of the student experience and providing the opportunity to explore your own creativity as a teacher in a fun, relaxed online environment. There will be opportunities to create and present your own lesson plans and to discuss and design activities with others. Both the online and face to face classroom environment will be considered in all sessions.
