English Courses for Teachers

English refreshing courses for teachers and adults who want to speak fluent, confident and authentic English

LingoDrama English

For language teachers who want to become stunning examples for their students.

For any adults who want to speak English fluently and spontaneously (finally).

Whether you are:

  • A language teacher looking to improve your English for personal development reasons, or…
  • An English language teacher who needs to keep on progressing and stay up-to-date with the language (even though you live in a not-English-speaking-country)

You shouldn’t feel you haven’t got what it takes when it comes to speaking English.

I understand how many of my colleagues (language teachers like you) feel when students question their competence in English: their confidence as teachers wobbles and they feel vulnerable.

Is this something you, too, experienced?

Nice to meet you! I’m Daniela, LingoDrama English course creator. I created this English speaking course to help teachers like you to speak authentic and fluent English with confidence.

As a language teacher myself, I know how difficult it can be to find an English course that gets you engaged through a fresh, innovative methodology, suitable even for the most demanding students… like us, language teachers!

When I created LingoDrama English I put all my experience as a suggestopedic language teacher for adults, drama practitioner and Learning & Development expert.

LingoDrama English IS:

A training format for learning English through drama methods.

You will:

  • Absorb words and phrases that will make your English fresh and authentic
  • Polish your pronunciation, articulation and intonation
  • Boost your fluency by practising your public speaking skills in a safe and friendly environment.

LingoDrama English IS NOT:

Just to make it crystal clear, this is not:

  • NOT a language course where students sit all the time listening to the teacher’s lessons
  • NOT a course where students read plays (e.g. Shakespeare’s plays), analyse them and play them out
  • NOT a course for training actors or students in drama.

Due to the COVID-19 crisis all training courses in London are postponed until 2022. Please get in touch with me for any questions about the next courses available.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

1) Why should I choose a language training course based on drama rather than any other common English language course?

Games and drama help to create a pleasant and relaxed atmosphere that really enables the students to learn faster and better. That is a matter of fact supported by research. LingoDrama English (Learn English through Drama) is built upon the suggestopedic principles. Suggestopedia is a most-effective pedagogy recommended by Unesco. Unesco recommended Suggestopedia as a superior method for learning languages after observing and testing the actual results the students in suggestopedic courses had achieved.

2) Is the course for actors? Do I need an experience in acting, drama or theatrical improvisation?

We do not require any previous experience in acting, drama or theatrical improvisation. This is not a course for training actors. This is a proper English language course. A previous experience in acting or improvising might help, though it is not necessary.

3) How can I be sure my level of English is suitable for the training?

The level of English required is intermediate: B2 level of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). You can self-assess your skills by reading this chart. In addition to this, you will be asked to take our initial assessment test online once you confirm your signup. C1 level is also suitable.

4) I’m an introvert person. Is this course for me?

Absolutely YES. The teaching approach in LingoDrama English (Learn English through Drama) courses are based upon the respect of everyone’s expression. The method aims at taking every student’s English skills to the next level, regardless their personality. Even the most shy and introvert of our students have always achieved the expected didactic results. My teaching team consists of qualified teachers able to walk every student through the lessons. We observed that introvert people benefit the most from working with drama and public speaking as during the training they finally have the chance to develop their confidence in speaking and to unleash their potential within a friendly and safe learning environment.

5) Am I too old for joining in the course?

Absolutely NOT, you are never too old for joining us. The course is designed for adult students. What really matters is that you are willing to dive in this learning experience with enthusiasm and to make the most of it.

6) Is this course only for language teachers?

No. This course is actually suitable for any adults. The level of English required is intermediate/advanced.

7) There are 2 courses available: do the two courses have the same didactic programme?

No. The two courses available have two different didactic programmes. In other words, the students will explore different topics (and therefore a different vocabulary) in the two courses. That’s the reason why we encourage the students who can take the 4-week Summer School, to choose the Summer School without any doubts.

8) What will I do during the lessons? What will I learn?

You will explore topics, absorb lots of new words, verbs and idioms, consolidate your knowledge of the grammar structures, polish your pronunciation, practise your public speaking skills in English. Our goal is to make your English authentic and fluent. In order to reach that goal, your teacher will propose you drama exercises and fun games to help you to boost your fluency and gain in confidence in speaking English. The games and the exercises are suitable for everybody and do not require any previous acting experience. Your teacher will walk you through the lessons from the most basic exercises to theatrical improvisation. You will practise your writing skills by writing dialogues and other types of texts. You will play out the texts you will write, rather than playing out plays by other authors. This course is not about reading and memorising authors’ plays and then playing them out.

9) Will I learn the grammar as well?

Yes, you will revise and consolidate the grammar structures… by having fun! In Learn English through Drama we help the students to revise the grammar structures they need to consolidate or to learn. We believe that fluency is about speaking and writing correctly. Your teacher will propose briefings and exercises on the grammar starting from the most frequent mistakes the students make during the lessons.

10) Will I practise my writing skills, as well?

Yes, a lot. We do not give the students authors’ plays to read, memorise and play out. Instead, we stimulate our students’ creativity and we want them to practise writing different types of texts (emails, letters, messages, articles, etc.) as well as to create the dialogues they will be playing out.

11) Is the course suitable for dyslexic people?

Yes, the course is suitable for dyslexic people. We have a proven track of results and feedback from ex-students who are dyslexic: they enjoyed the course and fully achieved the expected results. The course is not specifically designed for dyslexic people. Nevertheless, the methodology based on the suggestopedic principles helps dyslexic students to perfectly blend with non-dyslexic students within the same group as well as to achieve the expected results in line with non-dyslexic students.

12) Is there a maximum number of students in each group?

Yes, the maximum number of students in each group is 12. We close the course to 12 students in order to personalise the training for each student as much as possible and to deliver the best learning experience to each student, as well. The course can be challenging sometimes for some students. For that reason, we need to keep the group relatively small in order for the teacher to be able to work individually with each student, to take care of everyone in the group and ultimately to make sure everybody achieves the expected results.

13) How long is the course?

Learn English through Drama is an intensive language course that lasts 2 weeks (10 days). Students will do 45 hours of lesson in total. There are 2 courses available every summer. If you decide to take both courses, that is what we call ‘Summer School’: it lasts 4 weeks (20 days), 90 hours of lessons in total.

14) Will I get a certificate at the end of the course?

Yes, you will get a certificate of attendance at the end of the course.

15) Can you provide me with a suitable accommodation solution?

Yes, adult students can choose from a range of accommodation solutions: family home stay, house share, hall of residence. My school works in partnership with a network of trusted accommodation agencies specialised in the provision of high quality accommodation solutions for international students and short stays. This means that my school is able to: 1) To give you the peace of mind and the quality you deserve; 2) To promptly find a replacement solution in case this is necessary.

16) Can you provide me with other services, for instance the airport transfer?

Yes, I can offer airport transfer solutions. Please request the prospectus to find out all the details about the airport transfer solutions.

17) What is the emergency service?

The emergency service will be your safety net during your stay in London. Anything can happen during your stay: getting ill, getting lost in London, losing your ID or passport, for instance. Thanks to the emergency service you can phone me any time 24/7 and get support.
