"Sincerely, I have learnt so much this year that I can only say that I will recommend the Foundation course to every aspiring actor I meet. My skills have flourished and my friends in acting have noticed a huge, huge change. One of the major things I have learnt is that you cannot Act if you cannot Listen. I can only say positive things about this year, it was GREAT GREAT GREAT!"
"I had a lovely experience. The teachers were very straightforward and willing to help me to better myself as an actor. I hope to perhaps return one day on a longer course."
"Even though I was only studying at LAMDA for a semester, I learnt so much and had an amazing time doing so. The classes and workshops were challenging and extremely valuable for my acting. It was great to learn so much from different styles of teaching and techniques."
" I feel like I have made progress in many areas of the training and am more confident in applying new techniques."
"The course really pushed me to the limits artistically and physically, allowing me the opportunity to become a better actor and artist."
"There is nothing better I could have done with my year. "
"My experience of training at LAMDA has been some of the most challenging and important times for me. It has been a whirlwind of change, leaving me with an unparalleled sense of anticipation and excitement to apply all I have learned. LAMDA has made me an actor."
"Besides a network of highly accomplished actors I trained with and can call upon at the drop of a hat to develop and devise a piece of theatre; besides the blessing of much-needed temp work in between auditions; besides the priceless exposure to agents & casting directors; besides all these things and more that going to an elite drama school can give you, the most vital is KNOWING that I can crack any part that comes my way. Some parts will take longer than others and doubt will always be prevalent in varying degrees but it's something actors yearn for: to be competent. And I am, because of LAMDA."
"The training at LAMDA is second to none and I would highly recommend it to anyone wanting to train in acting."
"The LAMDA Foundation course is a wonderful experience! A fantastic building block to move forward with your ability and acting career."
"The LAMDA Foundation course in my opinion sets any budding actor up comfortably for a tougher three year course. It helped me no end and I would recommend it to anyone."
"I did a summer Short Course and am now on the Two Year Acting course. I think that being at LAMDA is the best thing that has ever happened to me. I feel completely comfortable and dedicated to my training."
"Not only did I learn more about how to use body and voice effectively on stage and instensified my skill in approaching Shakespeare, I was also very lucky to meet a lot of wonderful people during the course. It was a great experience and every day left me wanting more."
"I was trained at LAMDA not only as an actor but as a young man. The course improved my ability onstage but also as a human being. I would recommend this experience to anyone interested in becoming a good stage performer."
"A whole year of playing in a safe, supportive and warm environment. I love LAMDA, I love London and I'm jealous of all people who have their experience ahead of them."

"The course was everything I expected! The group was very close and wonderful and we enjoyed working with other immensely. Great!"
"I am delighted I did the course and feel that it really benefitted me."
"A mixture of inspired teachers and a lovely group of people to work with has left me with a glowing impression of LAMDA."
"I've matured both as a performer and a person."
"The best summer course in the UK - 4 week course."
"Everyone was so focussed, friendly and helpful. Thank you!"
"This was truly the best, hardest and most rewarding 8 weeks of my life. I was pushed beyond my limits in nearly every class and leaned more than I ever thought I could. I would recommend the 8 week course to anyone who wants to go further with their acting. I only wish I could have stayed longer! "
"An impressive 14 weeks that has brought me a greater understanding of drama and a new look into my work towards becoming a professional actor."
"It has been once of the most amazing experiences of my life. I have so many things to take away with me and feel so privileged to have had to opportunity of attending such a fantastic drama school. Thank you!"
"Wonderful experience, I enjoyed every minute of it. Gave me so much confidence and understanding as an actor."
" Definitely something indispensible in my education as an actor."

"Thank you so much for such a great course. We all had a fantastic time and I really feel I've learnt a great deal... We've all become great friends as well as gained a deeper understanding of what we need to do to be part of a successful theatre production..."
"I came back to LAMDA after doing a Summer Course because I knew it would be good supplementary training to that I got as an undergraduate. Through the year, I was able to find my weaknesses and work to make them stronger."
"LAMDA has been an amazing addition to my training in the states at Boston University. The classical training has sharpened my tools and given me a broader range in both my acting and in life."
"LAMDA is good with movement. Penny has helped enormously and Rodney and John Bashford are invaluable at rehearsal. Fight with John is always a workout at keeping balance."
"LAMDA has been a wonderful experience in my journey through theatrical training. In the short amount of time that I’ve been here, I feel like LAMDA has become my home in London."
"I have had a really nice and beneficial year at LAMDA. All the teachers and the training has been fantastic! Thank you!!"
