Drama, Romanian education, teaching English, curriculum


The article aims to examine the usage of drama in teaching by the Romanian teachers of English. Since prior research has not examined this topic in a systematic way, the purpose of the paper aims to answer the questions regarding to what extent teachers of English use drama and which are the factors that determine this behaviour. A survey on a convenience sample (N= 276) of Romanian teachers of English in primary, secondary and high schools was conducted in May and June 2020, therefore during the Covid-19 pandemic. The findings show that teachers use drama to a small extent if compared to other methods and approaches in teaching English. The respondents’ opinions that drama is efficient in teaching vocabulary and students are delighted when teachers use this method have the highest impact on the usage of drama in teaching English in Romania. The findings can be taken into consideration for the educational policies regarding teaching English (and other foreign languages).
