TPR (Total Physical Response)

Total Physical Response (TPR) is a language teaching method developed by Dr. James Asher that combines language learning with physical movement. In TPR, teachers give commands in the target language, and students respond with corresponding physical actions. This approach helps learners associate words and phrases with physical activities, making language acquisition more memorable and engaging. TPR is especially effective for young learners and beginners, as it reduces anxiety, promotes active participation, and enhances retention through kinesthetic learning.
