I had a very positive meeting with the Government Department that leads on the teaching of English as a second language.  I enjoyed providing workshops for actors and teachers on Basic Drama Strategies and Drama for Writing.  I met with school Co-ordinators of English and we considered how ‘Drama for Language Learning’ can be developed as part of their school improvement agendas.  Then I gave a speech at the Anglo Uruguay Theatre, after which I was kindly taken to lunch by representatives of the British Embassy, who had attended  It was a busy, fascinating and great week in Montevideo. Thanks for an inspiring visit, Juan Luis Granato and  ‘The Company’.
