We know how frustrating it can be to have DISENGAGED STUDENTS, low fluency results, and poor student retention.
But the good news is that it doesn't have to be that way. We have created TPRS (Teaching Proficiency through Reading and Storytelling), a language teaching method that engages students, produces fluency fast, and retains students year after year.
Equipped with TPRS, over 10,000 teachers have made teaching a language fun, easy and effective!
What teachers are saying
Great workshop with very useful information and techniques. Amazing job providing actionable concepts in a way that encouraged instant application. I'm confident to implement the concepts because I already did it in the workshop! I can't be more thankful for the opportunity to attend.
I have a CELTA certificate, but after my experience learning Spanish with TPRS, I'm committed to using this technique. I want my ESL students to be able to speak English, not memorize grammar rules.
This was my 3rd time taking TPRS 101 and I think I FINALLY get it.
1) Let the student hear a manageable chunk of language
2) Add details and ask questions
3) Let them show you what they know, and then keep discussing the story!
This method of teaching is unbelievably fun for the students and me as the teacher, and I'm seeing amazing results.
I highly recommend the TPRS 101 Workshop for any teacher interested in TPRS and how they can use it in their classrooms. It can be challenging, but the core principles are simple, and Blaine Ray does an excellent job of explaining it. The best part of the workshop was the opportunity to practice doing TPRS as a teacher!
I am amazed at how effective this method is for teaching a second language! It is a positive, fun experience for students with varying learning styles, abilities, and challenges. TPRS truly eliminates the stress of language acquisition and fosters the joy of learning.
I’ve been studying videos and articles about TPRS online for a year now, spattering my lessons with feeble attempts at this magic recipe of fluency. Taking the 101 course gave me the space I needed to learn the structure in depth and to try it out with a supportive instructor.
I am so grateful I came across TPRS!
I took the 101 workshop and I really enjoyed it. We had the best teachers. It is a well put together workshop. I was able to practice right away! It Is the best teaching I have ever seen in how to teach Spanish. I can’t way to implement it in my classroom!
Thanks for a wonderful workshop! My expectations were very high and even then you exceeded them! These two days have been the most important experience in my professional career. Thank you! Today I did the recipe in class, followed your advice and it was the MOST SUCCESSFUL LESSON that I have had to the date. Wonderful!

I highly suggest this workshop if you want your students to improve in fluency.
Amazing workshop! I learnt so much in such a short time. It was dynamic and fun, and most important, I got a good feel of what TPRS is.
My experience with the TPRS workshop was fantastic! Von, the moderator, did a great job keeping us entertained and focused while we learned. TPRS works! It will build up your confidence and motivate you with your new language.
