Educo is proud to introduce a funny and powerful 4 day training event with fantastic Romina Tappi.
Emotion is the engine, drama is the vehicle!
EDUCO’s methodology follows the theories (and results) of many accredited linguists and classroom practitioners. This workshop will explore these theories using scripts, songs and drama based language activities, with emotions as the engine and drama techniques as the vehicle. Using Educo’s holistic approach to learning, TEATRINO has for many years entertained and motivated students through T.I.E. TEATRINO puts into practice the theory that second language teaching should focus on encouraging ‘natural’ acquisition and providing input that emotionally stimulates the learner. The experience is memorable because the students are emotionally involved and having fun! With TEATRINO students acquire the linguistic skills they need for communication without realizing they are learning. Drama is a learning medium rooted in a child’s experience of play and has a fundamental and valid place as a powerful ESL teaching tool. Educational practices and developments are definitely a ‘work in progress’, so lose your inhibitions, have fun, and Aspire to Inspire!
