TPR (total physical Response) is a method of teaching language using physical movement to react to Verbal input in order to reduce student inhibitions and lower their affective filter. In TPR, instructors give commands to students in the target language, and Students respond with whole-body actions. Total physical response is often used Alongside other methods and techniques.How can use in class? In the Classroom the teacher plays the role of parent. She starts by saying a word ('jump') or a phrase ('look at the board') and demonstrating an action. The Teacher then says the command and the students all do the action. After Repeating a few times it is possible to extend this by asking the students to Repeat the word as they do the action. When they feel confident with the word Or phrase you can then ask the students to direct each other or the whole Class. It is more effective if the students are standing in a circle around the Teacher and you can even encourage them to walk around as they do the action.
