This course gives you a jump start into a more dynamic and brain compatible approach to language learning. Dynamic language learning has its foundation in TPRS (Teaching Proficiency through Reading and Storytelling) and a highly effective combination of Comprehensible Input based techniques. The course prepares you to start using key skills of TPRS and TCI (Teaching with Comprehensible Input) in your own classroom.
In each 6-hour course day, new material is presented in a brain-friendly manner through a variety of formats: presentation, individual reflection, skill-building activities, sharing with a partner, demonstration, group discussion, small group practice, peer coaching, and lesson planning.
