Magic English Mind
Performing Magic, Speaking English, and Engaging the Audience’s Minds
After completing this course, students will learn how to speak English fluently while performing magic tricks. That is, while you are doing magic tricks, you are using English to narrate what you are doing. Sometimes, you also use English to introduce the story behind the magic tricks.
In addition, students will acquire various types of magic skills, including close-up magic, party tricks, and mentalism, suitable for a wide range of occasions such as ice-breaking or event openings. Furthermore, storytelling has become a prominent skill in recent years. It is crucial to package key messages and persuade others through storytelling. Therefore, in this course, students will also learn how to influence others' decisions using the language of magic while speaking English.
By the end of the course, students will not only improve their spoken English and learn magic skills but also expand their vocabulary as they will need to use a wide range of advanced professional English terminology during their performances.
So, let's activate our English skills in the new semester and make some magic happen!
PS. The lecturer will use all-English during the course (explanation in Chinese will be provided when necessary).
