SkypeRead brings people together — from all over the world — in a Skype group call to do a read-through of a movie.
In Hollywood, a read-through (or table read) is where the actors meet for the first time and read through the script. It’s a lot of fun, but a bit scary too: even famous actors can become nervous at a read-through.
SkypeRead uses the excitement and pressure of a movie read-through as a team-building tool. Plus, it’s a powerful exercise for helping non-native English-speakers to improve their communication skills.
