The Phileas Fogg Theatre Company has over 15 years of experience of working with Dutch students. We have worked with students with every level of English, from practically non-existent to fluent. Our highly trained, professional, native speaking English actors are able to set the level of English within 30 seconds of meeting your pupils.
Most pupils are a little nervous about doing a workshop/show which is all in English, this is normal. However, within a very short time they find they are enjoying it and seem to forget their initial fears. At the end of the workshop/show they come out of it with an incredible sense of achievement, which not only makes them more confident in speaking and listening to English but also more confident in themselves.
We can send you by email comprehensive teacher`s notes for the First World War Poets, Little Victorians and Romeo & Juliet. Please indicate on the booking form if you would like to receive these.
We understand college schedules can change after a booking has been made. If this happens contact Maria and rearrange another convenient date. Please note, if you cancel more than 72 hours prior to the performance time and date, you may be liable to a fee of 20% of the total booking amount. Within 72 hours of the booked time and date, you may be liable to payment in full. However, should you have to postpone a performance or workshop, and we are able to re-schedule your booking within the scholastic year, there will be no charge.
Most pupils remember the Phileas Fogg workshop/show they were involved in for years! This is mainly because they have had such an incredible time. Most of them are totally unaware that during that time they have learned more about spoken English, English literature, team building, history, sociology, drama and theatre. To us, the greatest benefit for the pupils is confidence.
After doing workshops the pupils are normally buzzing with excitement. When they go home they will tell their parents all about their experience. This can have a very positive effect on their opinion of your college.
Shows are performed by your students in front of the parents. At the end of the show the parents are always amazed by how well their children have done. This is a wonderful reflection on how good your college is. Some colleges invite the local media to come and cover the event which gives your college positive and free PR.
