You'll leave this session with a handful of theatre-based activities that you can immediately use with your English learners. You'll learn about the benefits of using drama games to encourage even the shyest students to speak up. You'll explore how drama techniques can be beneficial for trainee teachers as well as teambuilding between staff members. You'll also get an insight into the active workshops our native British theatre facilitators run in secondary schools across Belgium and Luxembourg, from escape rooms exploring British food and British landmarks to improvisation, Shakespeare and teacher training days.
