TPR Student Kits

Student Kits are available in:
English | Spanish | French | German | Dutch

Dear Colleague:

     Language instructors often say to me, "I tried the TPR lessons in your book and my students responded with great enthusiasm, but what can the students do at their seats?"

     Here are effective TPR activities that students can perform at their seats. Each student has a kit such as the interior of a kitchen. Then you say in the target language, "Put the man in front of the sink." With your playboard displayed so that it is clearly visible to the students, you place the man in the kitchen of your kit and your students follow by performing the same action in their kits.

     As items are internalized, you can gradually discontinue the modeling. Eventually, you will utter a direction and the students will quickly respond without being shown what to do.

     Each figure in the TPR Student Kits will stick to any location on the playboard without glue. Just press and the figure is on. It can be peeled off instantly and placed in a different location over and over.

     You can create fresh sentences that give students practice in understanding hundreds of useful vocabulary items and grammatical structures. Also, students quickly acquire "function" words such as up, down, on, off, under, over, next to, in front of, and behind.

     To guide you step-by-step I have written 10 complete lessons for each kit (giving you about 200 commands for each kit design), and those lessons are now available in your choice of English, Spanish, French, German, or Dutch. The kits can be used with children or adults who are learning any language including ESL and the sign language of the deaf.

Note: Supermarket Student and Teacher Kits are "out of print".

Best wishes for continued success,

James J. Asher

     P.S. My sister and I recently tried one of the Student Kits with a native speaker of Arabic giving directions. We were both surprised at how much vocabulary and grammar we picked up in a few minutes of play.

     Try this with any language you would like to acquire from Turkish to Chinese to Hebrew. It is simple, fast-moving, and it works!
