An Improv Jam: Speak Good English Lah!


Overview of Programme

Improvisation is not just for jazz, rap battles, theatre and comedy. Principles of improvisation can be applied to one’s attitude towards learning and everyday situations. It can help one to cope with uncomfortable situations, creatively offer ideas, gain confidence to explore and approach learning with a fun and positive attitude. In this programme, students will hear a short talk by a speaker who has applied these principles in his work and everyday life. They will get to learn how they can utilise these principles in their capacity as students. For example, they can apply the principles of improvisation to practise using the English Language and explore grammar rules. Some lucky students will also get the chance to participate in Improv games and jam with professional improvisers after the talk.
