Engaging Young Children through Drama


This 6-week course involves 2 evening workshop sessions each week from 7.00 – 9.30 pm at Chengzhu Mandarin Centre.

One class observation will also be arranged for each participant during the course to observe a speech and drama session conducted by an experienced Speech and Drama teacher.

This course introduces participants to aspects of the Julia Gabriel Centre’s unique EduDrama® methodology and how they can be used when working with young children in Mandarin. The course is designed to enable individuals to feel confident in using imagination, drama and stories to engage young children. Participants develop a range of skills to enhance children’s creative expression and performance skills.

Course Content:

  • Drama as a learning medium.
  • Using drama to engage young children.
  • Stories as a springboard to drama.
  • Story structures — creating and telling stories.
  • Language visualisation and dramatization.

The course incorporates aspects covered within the first few modules of the Julia Gabriel Foundation Teaching Certificate (Mandarin Speech & Drama) programme. So if an individual who completes ‘Engaging Young Children Through Drama (Mandarin)’ subsequently decides to go on to do the full Julia Gabriel Foundation Teaching Certificate (Mandarin Speech & Drama) programme, they will then be exempted from modules in the earlier part of that course (with fees adjusted accordingly).

Admission Criteria

Candidates must be clear, fluent Standard Mandarin speakers.
