What is TPRS?

TPR Storytelling is a radically different method of teaching a foreign language. Blaine Ray developed TPRS in 1990 by adding storytelling to James Asher's Total Physical Response method. TPRS draws upon Dr. Stephen Krashen's theory of language acquisition and his Natural Approach. Vocabulary is practised through the telling of humorous personalised stories. TPRS enables the teacher to provide a constant stream of comprehensible AND interesting input in the target language.

Who uses TPRS?

TPR Storytelling is a growing movement among foreign language teachers, particularly in the United States, and it is beginning to spread to other countries. In the United States the method has gained vocal support from an increasing core of language teachers and some school districts use it exclusively in their foreign language programs.

Why use TPRS?

“TPRS has brought my class alive and my students (both German and Spanish classes) are actually speaking the target language this year.” - Adin Eichle, teacher

“I am in the middle of my fifth year teaching with TPRS at St. Louis Community College. Why? Simple. It Works.”- Dr. Roy Day, French Teacher [The Language Educator, January 2006]

“We have seen enrollment in our programs increase by as much as 400% after TPRS programs were introduced.” - Susan Gross, TPRS Lecturer
