ENGLISH MIME ©
Written by: Tom Corradini
ENGLISH MIME© is an edutainment format constituted by a series of short video clips. Its aim is to teach English through fun and visual comedy and without the need of using a vehicular language. The format is directed to students worldwide. The first series is made of 30 episodes designed to reinforce English vocabulary at elementary level . The project is built around the idea of producing additional series in order to cover topics and vocabulary up to an intermediate level.
The protagonists of the series are 4 MIMES who recreate daily life situations within a studio setting. The audience follow the story and the relationship of the 4 mimes as they create, through physical comedy, the ambience and the situations of a specific topic in each clip.
The fact that the format does not use a vehicular language makes it directed to a global audience and is, furthermore, in line with the so-called “direct teaching method.”
