What would you say if I said that anything drama-based was not for me?

Well, then this is for you. Drama with us is not about making you an actor or even an extrovert. It’s simply about helping you become a better communicator in English by getting you to find joy in connecting meaningfully with other people.

Do I need any previous experience with drama?

No, just enthusiasm. We help you find the rest.

What level of English to I need?

Unless otherwise stated, anyone who is a strong A2 (Pre-Intermediate) level is able to take part in everything we do.

Why am I struggling to improve my English?

It’s usually fear, motivation and boredom. Speaking and interacting with people meaningfully can be daunting. We use drama techniques to shake off that fear. We focus on often neglected aspects of English such as pronunciation, voice projection, body language and fluency. In short, we make sure you enjoy speaking English with the same confidence you speak your first language.

What should I bring to every session?

A pencil, the text (which will be provided by us) and comfortable clothing that does not restrict movement.

How will you communicate my progress during the year?

There are 3 end-of-term reports that measure commitment, progress and character. There is also mid-term counselling should the need arise.

What are the director’s qualifications and experience?
