The K.E.T. method is aimed at boosting child development in English as a Second Language (ESL) using theatre-based techniques, games, and movement.
By following the ESL - Drama Teacher Training Video Course, you can discover how to become a more confident, creative, and engaging communicator of English.

The video course is presented by Miranda Flynn, professional actor with a diploma from The Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London and accredited English language teacher with a CELTA Certificate from Cambridge University.
Miranda's pluriannual experience in teaching children using the Kids English Theatre Method has shown her how children learn best, how they learn fastest and what they find most enjoyable. All her drama games, role-plays and stories have been researched and developed over the years. And she constantly devises and experiments new ideas and activities to accompany lessons, concocting new language games and elaborating skits and role-plays.
Most importantly, all her exercises have been successfully tried and tested in classrooms. She can therefore, principally help you to save time organising your lessons, balancing your activities and guide you to develop ideas that will make your lessons creative and a success straight away.
Curiosity is a compelling quality that all children own. Curiosity drives children to learn, explore, and experiment everything that surrounds them – this is the main reason why children make ideal language learners.
The secret to teaching a second language successfully is to fuel a child’s curiosity and keep it burning bright. This is not an easy endeavour, particularly because children have short attention spans and difficulty focusing for lengths of time.
Curiosity can be continually stimulated using a multisensory approach and appealing to children’s different learning styles. Theatre and play provide ideal instruments in helping children focus their energies and improve their communication skills by learning actively and creatively.
With the Video Course, you will learn that by adopting some simple theatrical techniques, you can interact and energize children and make your English instruction active, fun, exciting, and above all, totally unique.
In other words, you can make an impact in a child’s life while doing something you enjoy. It’s a win-win arrangement.
