“The process by which the inanimate becomes animate seems to the audience to be a real miracle.” 
― Sergei Obraztsov

Drama is interactive and visual, and shifts the focus from the teacher to the student, allowing students to express themselves in a meaningful context. Students take on more responsibility for their own learning than in the traditional classroom. Drama empowers students and provides an opportunity for independent thinking.

Drama as a training tool activates many of the innate human intelligences neglected by traditional methods of teaching. Benefits are numerous. Drama improves students’ performance in terms of building confidence, encouraging responsibility, tapping multiple intelligences, nurturing creativity, training speech skills and building second language skills.

Drama offers second language learners training in speech, and training in acting develops the expressive use of students' vocal range to convey emotion, inflection, attitude and other vocal elements. Drama training reduces monotone delivery and promotes loud, clear speech habits. In addition, students acquire meaningful, fluent interaction in the target language in a non-threatening environment.
