Italian & DRAMA 24,31 March h.12-16,30
Have you been studying Italian for a while but your mind gets blank when you speak? Do you still struggle with pronunciation? (double consonant; “gli” or how to roll the R). Drama is what you should try. It develops communicative skills in authentic and dynamic situations. It uses the language in context and makes it come to life. It helps to learn new words, builds confidence, improves pronunciation. During the lessons, we will be working with characters, body language, voice, intonation. We will use drama techniques employed by professional actors for memorizing vocabulary and expressions. Even though grammatical analysis of the language is included, this is not a traditional class, as we will focus on building your self-confidence through different and dynamic activities and with lots of fun! It is just a different way to learn, there is no need to
have experience in drama. (Level of Italian: from B1).
