Total Physical Response
The total physical response method places the emphasis on the student
understanding the message, and alleviates the pressure for total
accuracy. This is also described as a "fun" way of learning. The tutor
talks in the target language, commanding the students to do various
things in it e.g. "Stand up, sit down, stand up, turn left, put the ball
in the box. Go in the cupboard." Students do not have to start speaking
in the target language until they are ready, which is usually about 10
hours into the course. Pupils do well with this method of teaching, but
there are still gaps in their knowledge.
The theory behind this method is that it is easier to learn when you are
relaxed, so the first lesson consists of relaxation and breathing
exercises, in comfortable chairs. In later lessons, students are placed
in this extremely relaxed state while soothing music is played to them.
At the same time the teacher reads out texts and conversations in the
This method doesn't work well for everyone. Only students with suggestible personality types seem to benefit from it

that they wouldn't be able to learn subjects such as Geography or
Science. However, the following results were found:
The children did not forget English.
Apparently they were able to learn as well in French, as other children learnt in English.
They acquired "lots" of French. Their French was not perfect, but it was
good. Many of them went on to study at French-speaking Universities
