About the GLOTTODRAMA project

GLO-TOI (Glottodrama Transfer of Innovation - project number 2012-1-IT1-LEO05-02861, CUP code: G82F12000190006) is the 3rd step of a long term strategy aimed at developing a new methodology for teaching foreign languages through Drama & Theatre. The general methodological objective is to reinforce the motivation of the students, involve their whole personality with a holistic approach (mind and body, verbal and non-verbal codes) going beyond a formal concept of language competence and improving their real communication skills when performing context-based and pragmatic tasks.

The main objectives are:

1) Transferring the outcomes and the procedures of the Glottodrama Method to the teaching of 8 new foreign languages: English, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Romanian, Bulgarian, Greek and Turkish;
2) Publishing specific teaching materials for these languages;
3) Consolidating the reliability of the Glottodrama methodology by increasing the number and the quality of the teaching experiments in order to bear further scientific evidence of its effectiveness;
4) Establishing an 8 country network of Glottodrama teaching centres offering courses in local and foreign languages;
5) Expanding the teachers’ training in the Glottodrama Method;
6) Set up of a European Association for Drama & Theatre Applied to Language Learning with the purpose of enlarging the action of the network, involving more countries and educational institutions and reinforcing the long lasting effects of the project.
