Drama provides us with a wonderful selection of activities and techniques to use in the English language classroom. Drama activities are interactive, creative, and just plain fun. They are effective with all personality types (both outgoing and reserved), all language ability levels, all ages and all class sizes. And best of all, you do not have to be a drama expert to use these activities. In this course we take you through why drama activities are effective in the language classroom and the different types of activities that you can select from. The majority of the course, however, involves introducing you to specific drama activities to use. At the end of the course you will have a full tool box of drama activities to draw upon.
