Fluent, creative and spontaneous in speaking English
It is amazing how people let their creativity work when they feel free to express themselves in a foreign language, how they enjoy speaking without fear the mistakes, how the have fun while they absorb new words and phrases. My teachers and I have the chance to observe this phenomenon in Learn English through Drama summer school. Students think it is pure magic. We know that magic relies on a sturdy training design and strong methodological framework. Here is the magic explained. Learn English through Drama summer school is about using our imagination and learn together and from the others. More specifically, Francesca’s quotes identifies two important aspects of Learn English through Drama summer school: how we take our students from memorising new words and expressions to putting them into use, how we use the group to facilitate the student’s learning process.
From memorisation to creativity
The first aspect is about how Learn English through Drama lessons are designed. Students attending our Learn English through Drama summer school can already speak English but they wish to improve their English and fluency, fill the gaps they might have in the grammar and boost their confidence in speaking English. Therefore, we propose new words and expressions to make their English sound as natural as possible. We do that through both drama exercises and grammar games where they are asked to understand the meaning of the new words, then to memorise them, afterwards they are asked to use them creatively. Each step aims at different goals, therefore we need different methodologies to achieve the results expected. Researching and testing learning methodologies is what we love doing at Fast Learning School!
The importance of the people involved
The second aspect is about the group can facilitate the learning process. In Suggestopedia the learning environment is extremely relevant. By environment we mean: how the classroom is settled to accommodate the students, how the teacher welcomes the students and involves them during the lessons, how the teacher facilitates the communication between the participants, how we make the lessons fun and engaging for the students.

What needs do our English speaking course meet?
When we created Learn English through Drama we wanted to offer a language summer school UK for adults and teenagers wishing to boost their speaking skills and take their English to the next level. Our students are people looking for an alternative and still effective English speaking course where they can improve their English, boost their confidence in speaking English and have fun. At the same time, they want something different to any other traditional English course: they want to give a real breakthrough to their English skills and learn to speak fluently and spontaneously in any situations.
