Coming from a Classical Liceo learning drama in teaching methodology couldn’t be better than that.


Es un curso donde las estrategias que enseñan son cercanas, reales y se pueden llevar a cabo en el aula. Sin ninguna duda lo recomiendo! Gracias.
It is a course where the strategies they teach are real and can be carried out in the classroom. Without any doubt I recommend it! Thank you.

This course was better than expected, compared with other European programmes. I have been involved in the content of the course and the kindness of organisation was great.

Vinent, Lycée Polyvalent Touchard Washington, France

My expectations about the course were high and they were met. I have learned many technics that can use in a classroom during my lesson and in my drama course. I’m coming back to Croatia with a happy fulfilled heart, better knowledge of drama in education and more friends in my life.

This is an interesting rich and dense course for anyone who need useful drama skills as a teacher. Just make sure it is this same teacher Peny, because she was able to make this course a masterpiece example of how to present the best drama for understanding, even with the most clueless trainee.
