At Britishey Training Centre, our pursuit of innovative and engaging methods to teach English as a foreign language is never-ending. In our Certificate in Teaching English as a Foreign Language program, we are committed to providing our students with an unparalleled language learning experience. That’s why we’re excited to introduce the powerfully interactive tool of drama in our TEFL workshops, which has been significantly transforming the language learning process for our students.
The Dramatic Edge: Embracing Drama in TEFL Workshops
Drama is a multifaceted, dynamic medium that naturally blends with the process of language learning. As an integral part of our TEFL course at Britishey, drama workshops play a pivotal role in addressing different linguistic challenges and fostering valuable communication skills in students.
Here are some of the reasons why our drama workshops have been immensely successful among TEFL candidates:
1. Active Learning Environment
With drama, students embark on a journey where they engage in practical situations and live the language through real-life scenarios, gaining a deeper understanding of the cultural context.
2. Increased Confidence and Authenticity
Drama empowers TEFL candidates by allowing them to experiment with the language in a safe environment. As they explore different roles, make mistakes, and sharpen their improvisation skills, they develop the confidence to express themselves authentically in English.
3. Enhanced Non-verbal Communication Skills
Language is beyond words; gestures, facial expressions, and body language significantly impact how we communicate. Our drama workshops are designed to strengthen candidates’ ability to decipher and use appropriate body language to enhance their English teaching and learning experience effectively.
4. Boosted Creativity, Critical Thinking, and Collaboration
Drama pushes TEFL candidates to think out-of-the-box, devise creative solutions, and work in teams. These problem-solving and collaborative skills prepare them for real-world challenges and improve their overall communication abilities.
5. Emotional Appeal and Empathy
Drama has an innate ability to evoke emotions, which makes the language learning experience more compelling and relatable. These workshops encourage students to put themselves in others’ shoes, fostering empathy and cultivating rich, meaningful language interactions.
Drama, as a teaching technique, has proven to be a game-changer in the TEFL course at Britishey Training Centre. By tapping into the power of body language, emotions, and engaging contexts, our students have been embracing the art of English in ways that traditional methods couldn’t achieve. We are proud to offer prospective English teachers the building blocks for creating captivating, memorable lessons that will leave a lasting impact on their future students.
