“After 30 years of teaching and three published grammar books, I found this course to be a marvelous combination of artistic and drama techniques for the classroom, both creative and unusual. Under the guidance of Marisol and José, this remarkable group was able to bond in one day. I was inspired to rewrite a few pages of my curriculum and change the order of the grammar exercises to give the students more flexibility and chance to relate to each other like we did in the course. I intend to take this course again or another like it.”
- Barbara Bregstein, Spanish Professor & Founder of Educational Theatre of New York
“I’m still living off the positive vibes that Marisol and José put in motion this past summer. Every time I get a little or a lot frustrated at school, I look back to our week of team building and I feel ‘serene’ and confident. And, I try to pass that along to the children:
Happiness, confidence, and serenity.”
- Ann McCollum, Kindergarten Teacher, Italy
“This course reinvigorated me. It was a great balance of theory and practice, with a strong focus on practice and giving teachers tools to help students meaningfully engage in the learning process. In addition, Marisol and José were a wonderful teaching complement.
I highly recommend it.”
- Stacy Denny, Dean & Professor, University of The West Indies at Cave Hill, Barbados
“I am very pleased to have had the opportunity to acquaint myself with a new perspective of language teaching and to enrich my methodological grounding. What impacted me most profoundly professionally and personally was the fact that I could learn about the different layers of my personality and those of the group members through the shared group experiences enhanced by the synthesis of the diverse tasks, which contributed greatly to the effectiveness of both individual and group work...Experiencing the impact of a new perspective and learning from enthusiastic and knowledgeable experts in an intercultural group environment will surely prove a life-long memory. I am grateful for the opportunity.”
- Anita Gaál-Szabó, Kindergarten Teacher, Hungary
“The course was a moving, psychological experience. We had lessons in a very friendly and funny environment, the atmosphere was professional and easy going as well. We learnt a lot and found it very useful. We felt over the moon.”
- Malgorzata Gawlińska Lazar and Katarzyna Kordek, Elementary &
Secondary School Teachers, Poland
“Thank you Marisol and thank you José, for creating such an open and inspirational atmosphere where learning from each other was fun! Well done group, great to have you all as "long-distance-drama&language-teacher-colleagues"!”
