First time on a theatre stage in Bordeaux for Senior beginners!
This short video gives you a good example of how when using theatre activities with a little humour thrown in for good measure can be a great barrier breaker when starting to learn a new language. The 2 students shown in this video have been working on two sketches… “The Post Office” and “The Ticket Inspector” At the start they were “complete beginners” but after six months the end results were very encouraging. After studying the text with their teacher and working on MP3 audio support files, they were capable of interchanging their roles without text in hand. From the two sketches, grammar exercises were worked on. It was evident that learning a language through gestural movement gave a speeding up effect to the learning process.
