Children Learning Another Language:
An innovative approach
As scientific publications about TPR began appearing in print, teachers worldwide were curious to learn more. So, Dr. Asher was invited to elementary, high schools and universities in the United States and Canada and around the world including Cambridge University in England.
He was invited to write a piece in Psychology Today, which has a massive worldwide distribution. He was awarded more research grants from the Office of Education, the Defense Department and the State of California.
Dr. James J. Asher produced this spectacular documentary of children acquiring French and Spanish with TPR, the most thoroughly science-based research in all of language learning. As one teacher expressed it, “This is like moving from the age of darkness into the age of light.”
