This workshop is for teachers who are new to TPR Storytelling® or for teachers who feel that they need to revisit and practice the fundamentals of the method. We will focus on how and why Storytelling® is the most effective and fun way for students to learn a world language. We will also practice the necessary skills for using this method in the classroom with experienced coaches.

Language Experience: You will experience learning Chinese as a student in a TPRS class. You will be amazed by how much Chinese you will learn over our three and a half days together! Having the opportunity to be a student and a teacher at the same time will allow you to experience first-hand the skills essential to this method.

In order to receive the full benefit of both the training and the language-learning experience, we strongly encourage you to stay for the entire workshop. Trust us, you won’t want to miss a thing!
