Part of Drama Combo Camp E (Age 8-12) (Conducted in English)

Shakespeare is widely regarded as one of the best writers of all time in the English Language. The works of Shakespeare are often required reading in secondary schools. Come and discover the fun of Shakespeare and be better prepared for it in English class.

In this course, students will be introduced to the stories of Shakespeare and to bring Shakespeare’s stories to life through rehearsed reading. Through adding vocal and physical techniques to reading the stories out loud, students can improve their understanding of the text, as well as becoming more expressive and confident.

Students will learn to:

  • communicate changes in mood
  • speak audibly and clearly with good diction
  • demonstrate vocal contrast, appropriate to the moods, narrative and dialogue
  • use the face to reflect emotions

This is a great course to learn the skills to succeed in the prose reading competitions in the Hong Kong Speech Festival. Parents are invited to the last day of class for a showing of the students’ work.

“Speak what we feel, not what we ought to say.” – William Shakespeare (King Lear, Act 5, Scene 3)
