Italian & Drama: improve your communication skills with drama techniques

Have you been studying Italian for a while but your mind gets blank when you speak? Are you feeling awkward when listening to your voice and your pronunciation? Do you want to feel confident in different contexts of the everyday life? Drama develops communicative skills in authentic and dynamic situations. It helps to build your self-confidence when you speak in Italian and it improves pronunciation. During the lessons, we will be working with characters, body language, voice, intonation. We will use drama techniques employed by professional actors for memorizing vocabulary and expressions. Even though grammatical analysis of the language is included, this is not a traditional class, as we will focus on building your self-confidence through different and dynamic activities and with lots of fun! It is just a different way to learn, there is no need to have experience in drama. (Level of Italian: from B1).
