I just got back from the fluency fast classes in Denver. Wow. What a great week it was. I was in Jason Fritze’s Spanish class and spent the rest of the time observing other teachers. Dr. Stephen Krashen was there as well as fellow TPRS teachers like Ben Slavic.
I had no idea that this week was going to make such an impact. It was one of those weeks that truly changes your teaching and views on language acquisition. I will be blogging on it soon as I continue to process it.
Most of all, it was nice to meet other teachers who are doing the same thing that I am doing. People who are out there trying to make TPRS work. It can be easy to feel like I am alone sometimes, but this week helped me to see that I am really not alone in this.
