These workshops, accredited by the Czech Ministry of Education, aim to get teachers to dynamise their teaching through user-friendly drama techniques. Aside from improving students’ English, these activities send out a clear message that courage and inspiration should be at the core of every person’s learning.
ALL of our workshops are interactive, in English, kinesthetic, joyful, thought-provoking, imaginative, practical and educational.
ACCREDITED TEACHER TRAINING WORKSHOPS (CZK 2,000 / 60 MINS)
This course is designed to show how educators can improve participants’ spoken English by working on the physical aspects of pronunciation and voice through effective drama-based techniques. The games equip them with techniques that can help them move students forward with confidence. Educators will leave with a pack of fun, instant and effective techniques to brighten up their classroom.
This course shows how educators can unlock students’ confidence with English by getting them to delight in the language and encouraging them to let their personalities shine through. Students don’t often get enough time to play with English or connect meaningfully. Here, educators will be taught how to use drama techniques to fill students with a longing to speak, and keep speaking.
This course teaches educators to recognise that growing up is full of difficulty, vulnerability and conflict. Educators will utilise activities that encourage students to work alongside one another; to confront issues – bullying, sexism, discrimination to name but a few – and arrive at practical solutions through collectivity, camaraderie and sensitivity.

This course shows how educators can make Shakespeare accessible and relevant by allowing students to explore themes and language through movement and experimentation; to ‘get’ him and ‘get’ themselves in the process. Shakespearean language is often a major obstacle for teachers as well as students. But done ‘on your feet’, students discover a muscularity and rhythm in the words, followed by a wisdom that helps them understand their world better.
This course is designed to show how educators can use drama to bring any given English novel to life. Students often find classics dated in terms of language and relevance. Drama-based activities can bring to life that world; through character exploration, recreating the time of the novel and playing out important scenes. Not only do they grow in confidence but the experience consequently leaves them with a longing to read more deeply.
This course shows educators how to get students to focus on and develop their Voice, Language and Body when giving presentations in English. Students often have to present in class without being told how. Here, educators learn ways to develop a student’s voice, enrich their vocabulary and how to use the stage well enough to give students clarity, content and charisma.
