Keeping your students engaged to the lesson can be hard, sometimes. Why not adding humor and fun to your habitual communication, then?
Comedy and humor are great resources in every teacher’s toolbox. Small jokes and a funny mood can spice up your lessons, and give them that particular flavor making them unforgettable.
This course will allow you to improve your capacity of public speaking by digging into humor and comedy. It will help you explore the humoristic side of your personality, and learn to exploit it for more effective communication – at school and in life.
As a potential participant, you might feel that you are not funny enough to take the course. As past participants like to say, however, they didn’t discovered their full comic potential until they took the course!
The course will have a strong practical component, so be ready to get actively involved! Participants will work alone, in groups, and in the class to explore their personalities, looking for their unique comedy style and voice.
They will practice public speaking and their verbal, non-verbal, and paraverbal communication, giving and receiving feedback from the trainer and the group.
Participants will also learn about different types of comedy and some of the most popular performers, their differences, and their styles.
Moreover, the course will dive into how jokes can get edgy, political, and uncomfortable, and what is the need for “safe spaces” in different contexts like business and education.
By the end of the course, participants will know how to mine their everyday life to find good “comedy material”. They will have improved their writing and delivering a humorous speech thanks to the feedback by the group and the trainer and numerous tips from public speaking and acting; and they will get more comfortable telling jokes and using humor in your lectures, presentations, personal and professional life.

I was very happy with the experience. It was a practical workshop where all the participants could share our opinions on humour and together we understood its meaning and how to use it in class. The teacher provided us with guidelines and useful information and tools.
