Learning outcomes
Drama in education offers students the possibilities, to get know a new teaching method that emphasizes self-expression in a foreign language, communication skills and pronunciation. The outcome of using dramatic methods such as role playing and simulations in classrooms is the acquisition and practice of new vocabulary, their interpretation and grammatical structures in authentic situations of everyday life. They will use German in writing and orally in different registers and work on variety of different language tasks - even performing a play at the end of the semester is possible.
Students get to know new teaching methods and by using drama techniques they train their pronunciation, fluent interaction, new vocabulary, grammatical structures, presentations skills, creativity and imagination. That develops a learner's ability to think more effectively.
