What is this course?

The Drama for Creative Language Learning course introduces teachers to the idea of using a dramatic pedagogy in the language learning classroom to enhance student capabilities and teacher confidence. Participants will be introduced to all dramatic strategies and techniques as well as explorative strategies, which when utilized in the language classroom, provide an authentic space where language learners can practise real life language, stimulate intellect and imagination and improve learners self confidence and motivation.

The course provides an overview of the research blending drama and language learning together and provides plenty of opportunity for participants to practise using drama as a medium in the language learning classroom. The course also acts as a ‘refresher’ course for those who have already implemented a dramatic pedagogy in the language learning classroom, but it offers an insight into the theoretical perspectives drawn from previous research in the world of TESOL. It also provides sample lesson ideas for all ages and levels and includes a microteaching element which allows participants to gain hands on experience as well as constructive feedback from experienced TESOL and drama facilitators. Participants will also develop and consolidate their own English language skills.


Who is the course for?

  • Non-native teachers of English who would like to gain experience and confidence in using drama as a medium for language learning in a creative, fun and pedagogically  sound way to enhance both teaching and learning to all ages and levels
  • Teachers who have a strong intermediate level in English (B1+ and above)
