Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review

Abstract

The application of drama strategies which focus more on meaning than on form can provide an impetus for ESL learners
to be more confident about speaking, thereby increasing the quantity of their spoken English. This paper discusses
existing research and the author’s own experiences in an attempt to highlight the positive effects of improvisations,
playwriting and rehearsals on the oral output of learners in relation to communicative English.
