LAMDA Exams learners perform standing together

About the Group Introductory exam

A first step into the world of LAMDA Exams, our Group Introductory exams not only help build skills to prepare learners for the graded Communication and Performance exams, but also serve them well for the rest of their lives. 

Groups are made up of between three and ten learners taking the exam together. They learn simple communication skills and teamwork through poetry and fun games.  

Although the entire group take part, learners have the chance to shine solo by taking lines or phrases from the poem to perform alone.  

The group is graded as a whole, receiving a collective result for all their hard work.  

This is a non-regulated examination.
