GrammaticArts® Free Taster Classes

Our free taster workshops and one to one consultations have been a great success, with positive feedback from all prospective GrammaticArts students!

The consultations include detailed feedback on students’ grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation, as well as vocal exercises in areas such as intonation, articulation, pitch, breath support and resonance. We incorporate acting exercises and text work, and provide additional support in areas including career coaching.

The taster classes include acting and improvisation exercises to provide an energetic and fun introduction to acting! They are offered both to adult students, and to schools interesting in working with GrammaticArts

Here are some reviews of our taster workshops:

 ‘’GrammaticArts is a fresh approach to learning English. It’s not common to have acting incorporated into an English course, and not every teacher is as multi-skilled as Jeanine. The course helps you understand your overall progression as an English student.‘’

Malgorzata (Poland,Opthamologist)

 ‘’Thank you Jeanine for a great session. Such a creative way to improve your English, confidence and public speaking. Would love to take up the foundation course in September.‘’

Monica Thaker (India, Media Research)

 ‘’I’ve finally found the place I’ve been looking for to improve my English. More than learning English grammar, the classes are based on identifying your personal skills, what you already have and know, and how to improve them. I can’t wait to start!!!!‘’

Ana Felix (Portugal, Videographics Producer)

 ‘’I’m so excited to join the course in September! Fantastic idea to improve English through acting. Many thanks Jeanine for the helpful consultation!‘’

Marianna Bezler (Belarus, Performance Analyst)

 ‘’I liked your approach, you were very motivating and explained everything very well.‘’

Michaela Lateva (Bulgaria/ Germany, Public Relations)

 ‘’I practised my sentence structure, learned new vocabulary and revised the English tenses. I also learned exercises to improve my voice, and acting exercises to communicate better in different situations.‘’

Eleonora (Italy, Barista/ Aspiring Air Hostess)

 ‘’I liked the way Jeanine corrected my spoken English – it was informative, fun and I learned a lot.‘’

Zofia De Montford (Poland, Translator)

‘’I liked the fact that it combines different subjects, all of which I’m interested in! I also liked Jeanine’s warmth!‘’

Laura (Italy, Waitress)

‘’I really enjoyed the acting and intonation exercises, they are extremely helpful for daily communication‘’

Anh (Vietnam, Office Administrator)
