Demonstration of a New Strategy
in Language Learning
This gritty twenty-minute black and white film would evolve into a worldwide phenomenon called TPR. Dr. Glen Bryan, Head of The Office of Nava Research told me he was “blown away” to see twelve year old boys understanding a complex sample of Japanese after only twenty minutes of instruction.
He immediately called me and said he had $50,000 remaining in his budget for the year. He wanted me to use the funds as a grant to continue my research on what he witnessed that showed so much promise.
He also asked permission to make a copy of the film to show the cutting-edge research the Office of Naval research was supporting.
