TPR is More Than Commands - At All Levels
by Contee Seely & Elizabeth Romijn
Winners of the "Excellence in Teaching" award from the California Council for Adult Education
Explodes myths about the Total Physical Response:
Myth 1: TPR is limited to commands.
Myth 2: TPR is only useful at the beginning of language acquisition.
Demonstrates how you can use Professor James Asher's approach-
to overcome problems typically encountered in the use of TPR,
to teach tenses and verb forms in any language in 6 ways,
to teach grammar, idioms, and fluent discourse in a natural way, and
to help your students tell stories that move them into fluent speaking, reading, and writing.
Shows you how to go from zero to correct spoken fluency with TPR. Very practical, with many examples.
