Instructor′s Notebook: How to Apply TPR For Best Results Ramiro reveals secrets about Total Physical Response(TM) (known worldwide as TPR), that he discovered during 28 years of teaching Spanish to students of all ages, including adults. That stunning success inspired his students to honor him with awards of "The Most Remembered Teacher" and "Outstanding Teacher of the Year." Ramiro guides you step by step with TPR lessons you can use in any language to keep students engaged day after day. Many games, dialogues, and even tests are included. You will love his book, and the companion book, Instructor's Notebook: TPR Homework Exercises. When language teachers asked Ramiro for more, he produced The Graphics Book in your choice of English, Spanish, French or German. The game that his students asked to play over and over is Ramiro's TPR Bingo. For a solid understanding of the powerful linguistic tool of TPR, Ramiro recommends you use his books and games after you have read James J. Asher's classic book, Learning Another Language Through Actions, now in its 7th edition. Ramiro Garcia earned his bachelor's and master's degrees in Spanish, and a master's degree in Linguistics from San Jose State University in San Jose, California. For 28 years, he successfully applied the Total Physical Response(TM) approach in teaching Spanish at Prospect High School in Saratoga, California, where he also served for 13 years as chairman of the language department. The students selected Ramiro Garcia as their "Outstanding Teacher of the Year," and the following year, he was honored by the students as "The Most Remembered Teacher." He has taught Spanish also at De Anza College and for adults in night classes. Ramiro has also organized and guided tours of students to Mexico, Hawaii, and Europe.

Fluent Forever by Gabriel Wyner


Original Title: Fluent Forever

The ultimate rapid language-learning guide! For those who’ve despaired of ever learning a foreign language, here, finally, is a book that will make the words stick. At thirty years old, Gabriel Wyner speaks six languages fluently. He didn’t learn them in school -- who does? -- rather, he learned them in the past few years, working on his own and practicing on the subway, using simple techniques and free online resources. In Fluent Forever Wyner reveals what he’s discovered. The greatest challenge to learning a foreign language is the challenge of memory; there are just too many words and too many rules. For every new word we learn, we seem to forget two old ones, and as a result, fluency can seem out of reach. Fluent Forever tackles this challenge head-on. With empathy for the language-challenged and abundant humor, Wyner deconstructs the learning process, revealing how to build a foreign language in your mind from the ground up. Starting with pronunciation, you’ll learn how to rewire your ears and turn foreign sounds into familiar sounds. You'll retrain your tongue to produce those sounds accurately, using tricks from opera singers and actors. Next, you'll begin to tackle words, and connect sounds and spellings to imagery, rather than translations, which will enable you to think in a foreign language. And with the help of sophisticated spaced-repetition techniques, you'll be able to memorize hundreds of words a month in minutes every day. Soon, you'll gain the ability to learn grammar and more difficult abstract words--without the tedious drills and exercises of language classes and grammar books. This is brain hacking at its most exciting, taking what we know about neuroscience and linguistics and using it to create the most efficient and enjoyable way to learn a foreign language in the spare minutes of your day.
