Summary/Abstract: This article addresses a diffused need of pedagogical innovation shared by the Glottodrama project partnership. Moreover it tries to challenge a common critical issue concerning the language programmes offered by European educational systems and often underlined in the pedagogical literature: the unbalanced and weaker development of oral skills, crucial in real interactions, compared with grammar and written skills. The Glottodrama Method is aimed at a progressive and integrated development of linguistic and acting skills, by a sequence of key activities involving increasing grades of communicative autonomy: dramatization, role-taking, role-play, creative writing, monologues and improvisations.
