TPRS® or Teaching Proficiency through Reading and Storytelling® is a method of teaching languages through comprehensible readings and interactive oral stories. Through compelling and repeated tales, students pick up the language — even if they haven’t studied grammar and vocabulary yet.
Blaine Ray developed the TPRS® in the late 1980s, but thousands of teachers have helped contribute to what the method is today and how it is implemented. TPRS Books is committed to continuing what Ray and other educators have done by training more teachers to apply and expand TPRS® in their classrooms.
