I’ve developed and tested many kinds of methods to ease learning languages with my students, colleagues and f.ex. with dancers at Zodiak – Center for New Dance in Helsinki and in many other locations in Finland actively since 2008. My methods are based on drama, improvisation, kinesthetic games and activities and are designed to ease learning languages whether foreign or mother tongues. My methods are applicable to learners of any age, levels and skills.
I’ve got always fine results and feedback from teachers and students. Also University of Turku has done a research about teaching Action grammar during the years 2008-2011 with convinced results. I’ve been participated to that research by using action methods in my classrooms in those years and still.
