TPRS® Language Learning Books Online
ABOUT TPRS BOOKS
TPRS Books started with Blaine Ray, the proponent of TPRS® foreign language learning method. In the late 1980s, Ray worked as a Spanish teacher. He struggled to engage his students in learning to read, write, and speak a new language. So, he created a teaching strategy based on the idea that the brain needs Comprehensible Input (CI), a compelling and repeated message that helps students understand the language — even if they haven’t learned all the grammar and vocabulary just yet.
That teaching strategy, now known as TPRS® or Teaching Proficiency through Reading and Storytelling, has pushed us to be devoted to worldwide teacher training. We also focus on the continual creation of materials, including children’s novels, that emphasize the implementation of CI for classroom learning.
Our trainers are in the classrooms with students and travel the world training teachers in school district and regional workshops. Join our workshops and browse through our online bookstore to see how you can share the gift of language to your students more effectively.

TPRS Books focuses on publishing TPRS®- based foreign language learning books. We create novels and interactive books with stories that don’t only appeal to the young audience but also highlight the most commonly-used words and phrases of a foreign language. Reading or listening to conversations and stories in a new language helps students acquire the Comprehensible Input they need to understand it faster and better, and eventually write and speak it.
Our bookstore offers a range of story selection — from detective and friendship tales to choose-where-the-story-goes type of children’s novels. These books are available in various languages, including Spanish, French, Chinese, German, English, and other languages. They are classified according to grade level, helping you pick the material that’s suitable to the needs and interests of your class. On top of the teacher training we provide, we offer resource materials that help you use TPRS books in your class efficiently.
