Question from Ana G.
Hi! I am from Spain and I've just got here two months ago! I was wondering if it's required have a fluent language, because I speak English but I'm still improving on it. Thank you!
Answer from Mikol W. Verified Student
Hi, Ana! Good question. There were a couple of others when I took the class that didn't have a very strong command of English, but they still managed to participate. if you've got a good understanding of English, and are willing to practice the material I think it could work for you. It's a very understanding learning environment.
Question from Victoria P.
Hi there, really considering to take this class :) I have one question though. There are 4 classes in this package. Does everyone get a chance to work on an actual script (scene) each class? Thank you
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi Victoria! The instructor uses scenes from existing films and TV scripts. Students have a scene partner and keep the same scene for 4 weeks-memorize, do the work, perform, performances are recorded and played back. Hope this helps!
