A Second Language Classroom That Works

Simple TPR Strategies that fill your classes with motivated students eager to learn!

by Joan Christopherson
Award winning language instructor

Dear Colleague,

     At my high school, we were disappointed that only 30 percent of the students enrolled in either Spanish or French, and then student interest faded after one or two years.

          We were determined to transform our foreign language offering into an award-winning program, but how to do it? Well, after many years of trial and error, my colleagues and I developed some very simple TPR Strategies that worked beautifully! Result: The demand for foreign languages exploded so much that our school added Russian, Italian, German and Japanese. A remarkable turnaround for any school.

     Now I would like to share these TPR Strategies with you. They are quick and simple, and easily adapted to any grade level, any language, and any instructor’s teaching style. And as Dr. Phil would say, ‘Please let me know how the strategies are working for you.”


PS - James Asher’s TPR always starts with fast-moving comprehension of the target language in chunks rather than word-by-word.
