Dr. James J. Asher's Classic Videos demonstrate the original research.
Historic videos show the original TPR research by Dr. James J. Asher with children and adults learning Japanese, Spanish, French and German. These vintage demonstrations are time-tested and even more valid than when the film was shot decades ago. We include with every video a copy of the scientific publication documenting the amazing results you will see. A must for anyone teaching TPR. Each video is unique, and shows different stress-free features of TPR instruction - no matter what language you are teaching, including English as a Second Language.
