Teaching English through Drama

Dear All,

I have developed an on-line course for teachers of English who want to SPICE up their classes with Drama but don’t know HOW! The course is very exciting with 6 LIVE webinars, readings, videos and discussion groups for sharing and caring.

Last year I trained 62 teachers from 14 countries and they shared experiences in a superb intercultural exchange of ideas. I cover some theory and include lots of practice through introducing strategies for good breathing, voice control, pronunciation, mime, body language, games, improv and role play.

I have made it short and accessible in order to reach out to teachers all over the world who may not have much spare cash, time or energy at the end of a working day! You can see the details here: http://integrating-technology.org/wp/teaching-english-through-drama/
