Introduction to TPRS
The TPR Storytelling Methodology for second language teaching has been successfully implemented in language classrooms worldwide. This action and story-based methodology quickly develops a core communicative vocabulary for students in a fun, creative way. Chief Atahm School has developed an intensive training program to help language teachers build successful language programs through TPRS. During this institute each participant will be provided with training through lectures, live teacher demonstrations, multimedia, and group activities.
