Our Greatest Challenge

In my view, the greatest challenge currently facing the TPRS world is to thoroughly convince other foreign language educators of one simple truth, that students trained in narrative methods acquire command of grammar in a way that is far superior to students who don’t receive such training.

The misconception that grammar-based methods actually work, when eradicated, will quickly create tremendous support for what is now a marginal approach to teaching.

As more and more teachers understand the true role of narrative methods in acquiring grammar, such methods will take their rightful place nationally and internationally at center stage in the game of foreign language acquisition.
