What is it? It’s the leading second language teaching methodology in the world.

Why it works? It uses constant repetition while asking students questions to create a story using their imaginations.

Who uses it? All the teachers who want their students to learn a second language through a natural teaching approach.

What is the natural teaching approach? It’s learning a second language in the same way you learn your first language. Stress free!

In this workshop you’ll experience first hand how TPRS works and how easy it is to learn a second language. The instructor will teach you the first step to TPRS and also give you time to practice.
