Theatre Workshop

This workshop will introduce students to Shakespeare's plays using a series of fun and interesting exercises. We will explore how Shakespeare lived and worked in the 16th century London, before bringing some of his most famous scenes to life with student participation, including: Romeo and Juliet, Othello, Macbeth, King Lear, Hamlet and A Midsummer Night’s Dream, for example. Students can also choose a theatre workshop on the following stories: Harry Potter, The Lion King or Sherlock Holmes.

Business Etiquette

This workshop will teach students, in either a classroom or via streaming (through Skype), how to write a cover letter and a CV in a positive and interesting way. Depending on the duration, students will also learn how to succeed in a job interview through exercises, CV writing, roleplays and interview simulations.

British Etiquette

This course covers the specific social behaviour and social habits of the Brits. From learning about their Monarchy and obsession with afternoon tea, to discussing the British need for good manners, punctuality and extreme politeness, we will be looking into the quintessential British character and its unique qualities. There are some definite ‘dos and don’ts’ when being in London too and, in this programme, students will learn to navigate the unwritten social rules (for example on tipping, queuing, greeting people and travelling the tube) in order to fit right into this dynamic city!

How To Be A Guide

This work experience, led by qualified Blue Badge guides, involves theoretical preparation which will allow students to acquire the knowledge and skills needed to become professional tourist guides. This is followed by a second phase where students put their learning into practice by acting as a British guide. This experience is aimed at improving verbal and communication skills, particularly in front of the public.
