“The English through drama course has been one of the best artistic experience in my life. Miriam is amazing! She is an excellent drama teacher, able to create a beautiful artistic enviroment. In the heart of Dublin I found a spot in which to be myself… I will always be grateful to Miriam and to the Flying Turtle for both this great opportunity and unforgettable experience“. – Maria Ida Sorrentino
“I have known Flying Turtle since I still was in Brazil and couldn’t wait for the moment to be back to my Drama classes in Dublin. Putting the teaching of English together with Drama was an absolutely incredible idea. If you have the opportunity to attend this course, don’t think twice, DO IT. The structure of the school is wonderful and the teacher is an angel on earth. You will love it as I loved. Hope to be back soon to attend a regular course”.

Current & Upcoming Options
Course #33: Learn English through Drama (10-week term on Tues & Thurs afternoons)
This is a unique course which combines the communicative learning style of an English language lesson with the creativity and spontaneity of a drama class. The original curriculum has been specifically researched and designed to provide an environment that allows language learners to explore the language freely and creatively, whilst also understanding the structure and rules of the grammar.
Each class will focus on a particular tense and the grammar commonly associated with it. The language is explored through drama games, improvisation and scene study with a special focus on exploring grammar points through movement and action. While this provides the underlying foundation for the course, students are encouraged to collaborate with the course facilitator to include materials relevant to their personal experience and reflective of their individual language needs.
The classes are suitable for all levels and designed to allow each learner to progress at their own pace, to challenge themselves or take things slowly depending on their needs. Our emphasis is on each student developing an authentic connection to the English Language for use in the real world.
Class size is limited to 12 students in order to ensure the maximum level of attention for all participants.
When: 3:30-6:30pm (new time!) | Tuesday and Thursday | 25 September - 29 November, 2018
