TPR Storytelling ( Teaching Proficiency through Reading and Storytelling or TPRS ) is a method of teaching foreign languages . TPRS lessons use a mixture of reading and storytelling to help students learn a foreign language in a classroom setting. The method works in three steps: in step one the new vocabulary structures to be learned are taught using a combination of translation , gestures , and personalized questions ; in step two those structures are used in a spoken class story; and finally, in step three, these same structures are used in a class reading. Throughout these three steps, the teacher will use a number of techniques to help make the target language comprehensible to the students , including careful limiting of vocabulary, constant asking of easy comprehension questions, frequent comprehension checks, and very short grammar explanations known as "pop-up grammar".

What is ALG? ALG or Automatic Language Growth was developed by Dr. J, Marvin Brown, an American linguist who based his theory on a much earlier theory called the Silent Way which was later called the Natural Way. The common ground between Dr.
