The workshops are thought by a dance artist together with the language teacher. The workshops offer functional, movement based ways of learning languages.
TALK workshops are suitable for all levels of education and age groups, and also for example for immigrant's Finnish lessons. We offer workshops in seven different languages. Zodiak offers TALK-workshops and teacher training for schools.
The workshops have been born as part of Zodiak´s outreach. They are based on Zodiak’s kinesthetic language workshops that were organized in 2007. In 2012, Zodiak received the Vuoden kieliteko award presented annually by the Finnish Language Teachers’ Association and the Otavan kirjasäätiö Foundation for its creative method for developing language skills among young people.
You can use these practices in your own teaching, but remember always to cite the original source!
