How to go from zero to correct spoken fluency with TPR. Very practical, with many examples. In English with examples in various languages. For world language and ELL/ESL teachers alike.

  • 7 ways to teach tenses and verb forms

  • How to develop fluency and connected discourse

  • Numerous examples in detail of how to bring about the natural acquisition of each of a variety of specific grammatical structures and of idioms and expressions

  • 4 basic types of TPR exercises

  • An introduction to Blaine Ray’s breakthrough TPRS (Teaching Proficiency through Reading and Storytelling), by which students unfailingly achieve fluency appropriate to their level

  • Abundant practical tips and fine points of TPR

  • A variety of written exercises, including the extremely productive TPR Dictation
