SCHOOLS TOURS 2009, 2008 & 2007

BEST's Theatre in Education (TIE) policy is to assist Slovene students in their Matura exam study by bringing English-speaking drama directly to their schools.

If desired, performances are followed by an inter-active feedback session with the actors where students can learn more about the background of the plays. This exchange with native speakers also helps students develop their confidence in spoken English.

'' Your professional production gave the play a British culture and style which we cannot get from non-native actors. The workshop afterwards helped both students and teachers clarify details about the text and raised questions we had not discussed in the classroom. Thank you for an excellent experience.''

Tatjana Shrestha, Gimnazija Kranj.
