TPR (Total Physical Response) is a language-teaching method that is based on the interaction between the instructor and the students through commands or other types of information. The instructor presents the information in the target language and the students act it out. The method is especially powerful in the training of basic, visual vocabulary of a language. It gives the student a chance to acquire the basic structures of the target language through input by active listening.
TPR er aðferð í tungumálakennslu sem byggir á samskiptum á milli kennara og nemenda í gegnum skipanir eða í gegnum aðrar upplýsingar.
