Экспериментальный Театр Торонто (Канада) при поддержке театра-студии M.E.S.S. (Россия) представляет мастер-класс - EMBODIED ENGLISH / Английский через драму
Course objectives: Embodied English is a custom-designed intensive course comprising 8 days of group and individual classes that aim to help advanced English learners to move closer to the native speaker ideal in oral communication.
Course structure: The course consists of three components that focus on elements of communication commonly ignored by most ESL courses.
The first component focuses on such aspects of oral communication as intonation, rhythm, clarity of articulation as well as voice and body expressivity. The second component incorporates close observation and thorough analysis of various samples of native speakers’ verbal and non-verbal behaviour, as it happens in real life, in a TV series, on stage, etc. Participants are encouraged to note the differences between language choices and strategies native speakers of English tend to make and their own way of using English. Finally, the last component comprises acting exercises and games aimed at the realistic imitation and appropriation of the verbal and non-verbal behaviour of a native or highly proficient speaker of English. As part of their training, participants will also work on two contrasting English-speaking characters from a contemporary American or Canadian play and present the results of their work at the end-of-the-course performance. Participants are expected to incorporate the acting techniques they have been taught in order to create a realistic portrayal of the native-speaking characters.
Advanced grammar and vocabulary, while not taught explicitly, will be integrated in all three components of the course and adapted to the needs of each individual student. Continual feedback both in writing (by email) or oral form (through immediate or delayed correction), is expected to contribute to the students’ language development.
Forms of instruction:
- group sessions, including the final performance – 21 hours
- class outings (professional theatre production or film in English, if available) – 2-3 hours
- one-on-one or pair tutorials – up to 1 hour (more available at additional cost)

Class times: group sessions are held on Mon-Thu, 6:30 pm-9:30 pm. Tutorials can be held before and after certain group sessions.
Teacher-student ratio: 10-14 participants, 1 principal instructor
