Teaching a second language can be such a difficult undertaking if you don’t know how to be creative in sharing knowledge with another person. Teachers attend language workshops to improve their methodology and learn new strategies on how to teach a foreign language effectively.
The workshops are designed to improve the teachers’ capabilities with new techniques on how to connect with their students and ensure that they stay on the course and acquire the necessary training. The TPRS Method developed by Blaine Ray of Eagle Mountain, Utah in the 1990’s is proven effective to keep the students’ interest and make language acquisition a fast and enjoyable experience.
Language school teachers using Blaine Ray’s Teaching Proficiency through Reading and Storytelling Method find that the comprehensible input-based system is more effective than the traditional way of teaching language classes. In TPRS, the teachers provide comprehensible inputs in large quantities but are not pressured to learn the words until they are ready to use it.
Essential Steps in Learning TPRS
It is important that the instructor is keenly observant and receptive to the responses of the students to avoid boredom and loss of focus. By attending language classes for teachers, the TPRS method is enhanced and teaching skills are honed.
