What is TPR?

I call this stress-free language learning tool, the Total Physical Response, known worldwide as TPR. Language-body conversations, the basis of TPR, is the most powerful tool in your box of linguistic tools. It will not solve all problems, but it will prepare your students for a successful transition to speaking, reading and writing. It has stood “the test of time” for over 50 years in thousands of language classrooms worldwide.
