Italian & Drama: improve your communication skills with drama techniques

You know the moment when you’re in Italy and you try to speak Italian, but everyone keeps replying to you in English?!

Or you’re chatting away to your Italian friends, but you suddenly get stuck? Learning Italian through drama techniques can help you to be confident, to manage communication breakdowns, and handle long silences. There’s no need to have any previous experience of drama techniques – it’s just a different way to strengthen what you’re learning in your language course. 

What’s involved in a drama workshop?

We’ll be working with voice, body-language, pronunciation and intonation through a series of dynamic activities. We will use techniques employed by professional actors to help you to avoid getting stuck while you speak Italian. You’ll be able to memorize expressions and find the right words at the right moment in a range of common situations.  Come and try!
