Hi partners!! I am Sara Cledera I work in Villa Del Río with students who are studying 3º and 4º ESO. I would like to explain you my experience with them when I try to work with tasks which are not related to "grammar" or "irregular verb list". 

As we have discussed in the last sessions in the course, our students sometimes do not feel motivated when they do "writing" or "reading" skills. 

Throughout my experience with teenagers that are not always really into English, I have realised that if you propose them theatre, they usually change their views from the language.

From my point of view, students do not feel stressed and they have fun learning role plays. Futhermore, when they are learning the script they are working on the four skills "listening", "reading" "writing" and "speaking" . Finally, I can say from my experience, when a student participates in an English theatre, He/she changes his/her mind  in the second language positively.

  1. DRAMA

    This activity is very important because you use different integrating abilities:

    - Listening (you must listen to the drama)
    - Speaking (you must talk about a topic)
    - Reading (you must read the play because you have to learn, your character)

    We work in a team; acquiring and using a new language. We can use authentic materials in the classroom.

    Preparing the students:
    • Divide the students into groups and ask them to decide which character each of them are going to play.
    • Read the drama in their groups.
    • Read the drama in their physical actions.
    • Make decorations.
    • Look for music.
    • This drama was performance in February 25th for celebration of Andalusia’s day. Students 2nd ESO.
