What TPRS Founder Blaine Ray
Has To Say About Ben Slavic's Training...
"Our only concern ever about the TPRS trademark is people using
it for profit, yet misrepresenting what TPRS is and does.
It then gives people an idea that TPRS is something that it isn't
because it is being misrepresented. That was our motivation in
getting it trademarked.
"What you have done is the opposite. You have helped so many people
do this better.
I can't thank you enough for your contributions. I have had so much
feedback about how you have helped.
Again, you are free to use TPRS in any way that helps TPRS and

Everything To See You Teach In Person..."
"I have to agree that it means everything to see you in person. Our
group ended up watching your video on the braiding story and it was
pure gold.. You are an amazing teacher. Everyone was very happy to
be able to watch you with a "real" class.
We kept stopping the DVD and talking about different aspects. It was
supremely helpful. And the French teachers were astounded.. They
were sure you were teaching an upper level class, because of how
fast you were talking and how much the kids got..."
"The Subtitles And Commentary Are
"The subtitles and commentary are extremely
helpful! It's like having one of your books but illustrated in 3D.
The way that you let teachers into your head to really see what you
are thinking and why you make certain decisions are those things
that turn on the light bulb. It's wonderful."
"This Is Really Helpful Stuff!"
"I watched the first DVD and it is really fantastic. I watched
Ben, this is really helpful stuff - not only for me who is just
getting started, but I could see it being really helpful on the
whole for TPRS.
I will like to use it if I ever get a parent who questions the value
of TPRS. Your written comments really add a lot."
"I Want To Watch This Over And Over...I
"Ben, I just finished watching 'The Show' in
the staff room. I loved it. I want to watch it over and over.
I was in awe of how much circling you got in, but it didn't feel
like circling, it felt like natural conversation.
It was clear too, with the reading, how it changed slightly from the
story, but the kids could follow it, that more and more reading is
so valuable. I wanted to read more too!"
"Ben, Your DVDs Are A Real Lifeline And
"Ben - Your DVDs are a real lifeline. So
helpful. I have had a chance to watch 3 of the DVDs this weekend,
and also the Wilbur story. So great to see your room in the first
video. Word lists and their use - totally clear!
"With your help, I think I am on the right track. Again, it is so
valuable to see how you work with your lists - vocabulary, verbs and
The reading component is fascinating. I have dropped
my level three class into TPRS - wow - they wonder who I am and what
have I done with their old French teacher! Thanks again, Ben. The
DVDs are great."
