Your English is good enough! Improv course for people with lower English level
About this Event
Do you love improv, but have not tried it in English yet? You would love to, but it also scares you? Or maybe you have tried it already, but didn’t feel that comfortable? This workshop is designed for improvisers who are new to improvising in English. We will play improv games and scenes in English and slowly get comfortable with the use of this language. This course will give you the confidence to improvise in English and book further workshops and classes in English. This super elective is designed for students with some improv experience who have not yet improvised in English.
- Improvising in English
- Getting comfortable with the language
- Learning that your English is good enough
- Tips and tricks as a second-language improviser
Min. participants 6, max. participants 14. If we have to cancel the event due to low numbers, we will do this with 24 hours notice.
Marie de Waal is a native German speaker and has been improvising since 2014, when she started in Sweden with a group consisting of all second-language English speakers.

Marie is the resident coach of ISL – Improv as a Second Language and facilitates improv workshops for second-language speakers on a regular basis.
