Literature and Drama in Language Teaching (Two Weeks Face to Face) Monday 13 – Friday 24 August 2018. A collaboration between NILE Institute and Drama Resource.

Drama is an effective way of helping students to activate that language and explore setting, character and story through cooperation, creativity and communication. This 50-hour face-to-face course is delivered by expert lecturers David Farmer and Alan Pulverness.
