English through Acting

actingVanWest College offers a variety of interesting workshops to students.

We offered a workshop called “English through Acting” on January 16th.  Diane Farnsworth, director of Vancouver English Through Art, taught this workshop to our students.  She has taught both English and Acting since 2000, and she teaches English through drama, film, dance, voice, script-writing and publishing.

In her class, our students did voice exercises, played a game to increase their vocabulary, made a story from their real experiences, played some characters they created, and so on.  There are no sit-down grammar classes, only interactive classes. Her class is very unique, fun, interesting and good for your English skills!

Diane divided our students into a few groups and gave each group some photos.  Then, students discussed the photos with each other, and made up a descriptive story.  Finally, they played some characters they created in front of other students.  Although some students looked a little shy about acting, they really enjoyed acting, and her class!  It was a great opportunity for them to practice English through acting.

Through this workshop, our students learned how to speak more naturally, and improved their conversation skills.

VanWest College not only offers workshops, but also offers a Free Conversation Club, from Monday to Thursday, 4:15 to 5:15 p.m. 

Come join our great Conversation Club, and study English with us!
