Presentation Skills Practice - Giving a presentation is hard. Giving a presentation in a foreign language is much harder! In this workshop, your students will learn how to bring out their inner confidence, a skill that surpasses any language. Through the activities and exercises in this workshop with a native English speaker, your students will discover a new way to give presentations. They will be able to use these skills not just in school lessons, but well into the future.
Play-it-Out ! - This physically and mentally active 90-minute improv-based workshop allows your students to relax in English, get comfortable and learn how to have fun with the language. Each workshop is led by a native English speaker who will get the class warmed up physically, mentally and vocally before leading them in activities wherein they have to work together, solve problems and sometimes pretend to be different characters.
Dissect a Play - This fun and challenging 90-minute workshop lets your students get hands-on-experience working with a play the way actors do. Led by native English speakers in small groups your students will analyze scenes from the script, practice pronunciation and the flow of the dalogue. They will also think about and experiment with the characters voices, movements and personalities as well as try on costumes. After learning and practicing, your students will get the chance to present scenes from the play for their classmates.
Shakespeare Speaks - This special workshop is designed for students pursuing their Abitur in English.
In this workshop your students will delve into the world of Shakespeare and experience the language, the characters, and the costumes not just in an academic way, but the way professional actors do!
Together in small groups, we will work on rhythm, pronunciation, sounds and meaning of the language. Your students will also take a deeper look at the characters' personalities, intentions, humor, costumes and movement.
As a culmination of the work done, your students will have the opportunity to present a scene to their classmates at the end.
