EFL Theatre

While teaching English as a foreign language overseas, I also revived and directed the English Language Theatre of Ostrava, taught an EFL Theatre seminar at Ostravska univerzita, and led a number of EFL theatre workshops in the Czech Republic and Serbia. That aspect of my professional repertoire has not come to the  forefront in the U.S., but I use techniques based on theatre work in most of my classes and the underlying philosophies of acting and directing impact my teaching. Also, it is not coincidental that I focus on exploring identity and discourse analysis in my applied linguistics research.
