Please share this resource: Byron Despres-Berry rated it really liked it Feb 25, The authors address common misconceptions about TPRS and expand on other things that you have probably heard about the method. To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign storytrlling.

One of the other annoying things of TPRS is that the books claims that half-measures will not work. The ‘acting’ by the students is reduced to following up orders by the teacher and even the input from pupils is controlled.

Stephanni Bahr rated it really liked it Sep 01, TPR also treats the class too much as a group rather than individuals with different problems and fluency levels.

It was as if I was skimming the surface without getting the opportunity to fully understand the idea behind TPR S and its practical use.

I wish I would have read this book first and then taken it to the workshop to take notes in and journal during my free time. Like Througgh on Facebook. This book is not yet featured on Listopia.

Between this book and the hundreds of hours of video that teachers around the community have uploaded of themselves asking TPRS stories over the years, you can probably figure out how to do this and get satisfactory results.


In my opinion a method has to sell itself. Could someone tell me the exactly year that book is published?

I got a chance to chat with Blaine over lunch while I was in Dallas and he signed storytellinf book and wrote a nice message inside the cover for me. If you are new to TPRS and want a detailed and thorough explanation of how to start using this method in your class, look no further!

I’m much in favour of combining skills in one class to keep attention. Cheryl Bennett rated it it was amazing Apr 10, First, my own target language proficiency had languished between the time I studied abroad and when I started teaching.

I bought my copy storyteling the book storytellinh the last day of a three-day Blaine Ray workshop in Dallas with Fluenct himself running the training. A Practical Guide for Language Teachers for more great comprehensible input strategies and activities outside of story asking. This is a must read for language teachers!

Oct 28, Ashley Stout rated it it was amazing. Lists with This Book. The pupils are like sheep bleating words in class. Blaine is a genuine servant-leadership kind of guy.

As with my review on “How to Mindmap” there are two issues to be discussed: I’m, for example, not sure if choral respondence is a handy tool for giving evidence of comprehension p. I have read lots of year, ?? Pupils listen, translate paragraphs, write texts in which quantity is more important than quality I know this is a bit short-sighted, but it roughly gives the method in a nutshell.

The FAQ section is one of the more valuable parts of this book. Evgeniy Golovko rated it it was amazing Sep 19, But as my pupils desperately ask for some basics, some rules on language they can learn, a foothold because we lost a lot of grammar teaching due to ‘elevating’ ideas from the government to focus on skills rather than knowledgeI storytellkng think TPR S will get my students top notch in fluency.


Dylan throkgh it it was amazing Sep 23, Mikayla rated it really liked it Jun 25, Both were dissatisfactory so far.

Open Preview See a Problem? I can’t imagine reading or translating a whole class can make my pupils enthusiastic for English. But that’s a universal problem, storytellling this is a career-changing approach.

I couldn’t quite establish levels. I often had to translate the text into a class situation of my own, and was puzzled.

One of the major problems I was facing was the difference in second language teaching in America and in Europe. Skilled authors like Blaine and Contee can explain the fundamentals while also giving more advanced practitioners what they need to take their teaching to the next level in the same book.
