ESL Business Teacher Articles: Improv Comedy

Improvisation, or improv comedy, is a form of live theatre in which the plot, characters and dialogue of a game, scene or story are made up in the moment. Often improvisers will take a suggestion from the audience, or draw on some other source of inspiration to get started. Improv is a great tool to learn in ones life to help enhance their social skills as well. Aside from making jokes, it will help you to react to conversations quickly and also at the same time keep them going. I personally think this is an important tool to learn from a young age.
