TPRS® or Teaching Proficiency through Reading and Storytelling® was created by Blaine Ray. It is a language teaching method based on the idea that the brain needs enormous amounts of Comprehensible Input (CI) to acquire a new language and interaction to develop oral language ability (the two components of fluency). Today, TPRS Books provides TRAINING and RESOURCES for teachers to get the best results ever seen. Check out www.tprsbooks.com.
