Build Conversational Skills with TPRS and Movie Making (Double Session)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Moviemaking is Storytelling with Dialog. But making a movie can seem long and complicated. It is not. This interactive workshop will demonstrate how you can: • Co–develop a dialog-driven script with your students in the Target Language with limited vocabulary. • Lead a rehearsal process with lots of engaging repetition that aids language comprehension for ALL students, whether performer, “techie” or member of the “production team”. • Film the production with a Smartphone and easily edit it for playback. Making a class movie can take a single class or a week, depending on how much time YOU want to invest. Each step builds through Comprehensible Input strategies. This is an activity that your students will always enjoy because they are the stars. Participants need to be ready to move
