There are many drama activities that actors use to warm up their voices and improve their projection, enunciation and overall vocal delivery.  Many of these activities can be used with English language learners to help them improve different features of their English pronunciation, from phoneme articulation to intonation and stress.  In this session we take you through a variety of these voice activities so that you can try them with your students.
