Suggestopedia for teachers and trainers​As a teacher or a teachers-to-be, sometimes you might run out of ideas on how to get the lessons engaging, entertaining and effective. Sometimes you probably would like to try something different, but you don’t know where to start. Actually, sometimes you might feel insecure about proposing playful exercises because you don’t know exactly how they could fit in your lesson or what to expect.

You too, do you feel the same? Yes? I get you.

It would be so much easier if you could follow a clear and solid roadmap for outlining and delivering truly innovative and genuinely effective English lessons without the fuss and the overwhelm you might experience sometimes – no matter how good you are at teaching!

Well, dear colleague, I’ve got something for you.

I put together a bulletproof teacher training programme that will give you all the knowledge, the tools and the confidence to teach English through drama. Yes, even if you just started out or you are thinking to start to teach English as a second language. Already in the business? Very well, let’s amplify and empower what you can do already!

Teaching English through drama is your next stop if you have been teaching English or if you are thinking to start your career as a language teacher.

Who am I?

I’m Daniela, creator of Learn English through Drama training format. I’m a certified suggestopedic language teacher with over 10 years of experience in training adults and students in communication, public speaking, speed learning methods, creative thinking and languages. When I created Learn English through Drama I wanted to put together my interest for theatre and theatrical improvisation, my passion for all drama-based teaching methods, Suggestopedia’s principles and my experience in Learning & Development.

The teacher training programme I offer is truly rich and will satisfy even the most demanding professionals looking for something interesting and different to anything else on the market.

“Well done. Our school will benefit from this training. It will be a success thanks to your help.”

Besides the online training, there will be an extra bit you can decide to take: an in-person bootcamp in London with the best teacher from my team, Mr MoJo. MoJo is an experienced ESL teacher, drama instructor and drama director as well.

This is an in-person training course that you can purchase separately from the online teacher training. The bootcamp is not mandatory in order for you to get certified in Teaching English through Drama.

For whom

  • Teachers in English as a second language
  • Teachers-to-be in English as a second language
  • Drama teachers with formal qualifications or experience in teaching English as a second language.

The teacher training programme is suitable for any language teachers. Even if English is not the language you teach, you can benefit from this training format as it will give you a methodological framework you will be able to implement for teaching any languages.

Due to the COVID-19 crisis all training courses in London are suspended for now. The bootcamp in London is a not mandatory part of the teacher training programme. This means you can decide to take the online programme only and to get enrolled in the bootcamp in London once the COVID-19 crisis is over and all in-person courses will be reactivated. Please get in touch with me for any questions about the next courses available.
