Drama Techniques for the English Language Classroom
"Meg is a brilliant teacher. She encouraged us throughout the whole two weeks to be ready to sing, clap and perform. We got a lot from her. She has got a wonderful personality. It was a privilege working with her"
Katalin Huszar-Veres July 2018
"The courses can be great when the trainer is great. If not they can be disappointing. The school should choose trainers with great care. This is my seventh course. The last course in Ireland was very disappointing. This was perfect."
