Welcome

Welcome ESL teachers and parents

Why not try ESL Drama Games  and boost some real energy and fantasy into your classes. ESL Drama and Movement Gamesare of enormous fun for children of all ages and are great for enhancing listening skills and fostering group cooperation.

I personally believe they are also essential in keeping young children attentive, motivated and thoroughly enthused. Your children will love you for them.

ESL Drama games help children of all ages focus and concentrate their energies and improve their communication skillstools useful in learning languages and in every aspect of life.

 ESL Drama helpsto stimulate qualities such as Communication, Concentration, Coordination and Self- Confidence contributing to the benefits of a strong memory, a rich vocabulary and self-esteem.

 This Teaching Tips blog contains creative ideas for teachers of young children ages 4-10 years

Why use ESL Drama Games?

As you well know, children are perfect language learners, they are imaginative, curious , keen to learn, and above all very receptive.

ESL Drama and Movement Games  free up and involve children and give them the possibility to really put into practice their language skills , albeit limited skills , by being ACT-ive.  With ESL Drama Children learn to expand their imaginations, free the way they think, talk and move in “English” by learning how to express themselves differently using their voice and their bodies   ( mime, by making funny faces, interpreting characters, eye contact ..)

ESL Drama games also spur children on to tell and act out stories/experiences and explore the world around them. Through, role-playing, puppetry and mime, improvisation and characterization a child’s memory and vocabulary is constantly stimulated .

Drama Games also help children focus and concentrate their energies and improve their self-confidence – by taking on a role for example even the shyest  of children are able to hide behind another character and feel less inhibited.

ESL Drama, when used at the beginning of a language lesson or play rehearsal, strengthen work with a script by helping the children warm up, focus their energy, develop their characters, work as a team and even memorize their lines!

The teaching tips I give in this blog address both the inexperienced and experienced language teachers who have very little time to follow a specialized ESL Teacher Drama Course or even prepare specific ESL drama lesson plans but who are nevertheless interested and perhaps intrigued in learning how to incorporate drama as an extra joyful dimension in their teaching.

 Happy reading
