Total Physical Response in First Year French by Francisco L. Cabello, Bill Denevan, Francisco Cabello

Dr. Francisco Cabello shares TPR lessons that worked with his high school and college students. Not only did the students enjoy each lesson, but they retained the French for weeks-even months later. Unique features:
• A script for easy step-by-step applications of each lesson.
• Grammar understood implicitly through the imperative.
• Tests for evaluation of student achievement.

TPR (known worldwide as the Total Physical Response) is a powerful linguistic tool developed through 20 years of meticulous research by Dr. James J. Asher at San Jose State University, founded in 1857 as the historic first public university in California.
