I got this question from an Italian student in China:

I read your website with much interest.

As I am treating the topic of TPRS in my Master Thesis for Teaching Chinese as a Foreign Language, I would like to ask you few questions:

1) Why is TPRS still not famous in Europe after 20 years since it was born? Why was the influence in China bigger?

2) Which are the TPRS books (especially the ones in Chinese language) which have had success in Europe as well?

I have not found many information about TPRS in Europe and I hope you could help me in my research.

Best Regards,

Sabrina Pelissero
