Abstract

This is a report of a stage performance of the play The Tempest by William Shakespeare by the students at the Prefectural University of Hiroshima as a seminar class activity. Firstly, the class setting, activities in the class and the process until the final stage performance are briefly
explained. Secondly, the importance of The Tempest as a text to deal with post-colonial themes is discussed. The two characters in the play, Caliban and Ariel, are examined as symbols of two types of learners of English as a foreign language who are put into today’s imperialistic situation of English language education. Lastly, the merits of drama method in language education is
emphasized, referring to the lack of drama education in Japanese education system as a whole.
