Total Physical Response (TPR) and Foreign Language SUCCESS

What is Total Physical Response and how can it help you with foreign language acquisition?

Total Physical Response offers tremendous advantages to language learners.  TPR is known to:

  1. Motivate students
  2. Improve retention
  3. Reduce anxiety and stress
  4. Help academically weaker students
  5. Teach students to determine meaning from context
  6. Increase student confidence
  7. Offer a refreshingly different style of teaching/learning
  8. Provide more effective, comprehensible input
  9. Encourage active listening
  10. Access and capitalize on the strengths of the right brain
  11. Offer easy ways to review
  12. Keep the class in the target language
  13. Promote goodwill between student and teacher
  14. Incorporate humor
  15. Increase interest and enjoyment

That is quite a list of benefits, isn’t it?  What great news for language learners of all ages!  And it’s important food for thought for parents and teachers as we select our curricula.  After all, couldn’t we all use ways to work smarter, not harder?

Excelerate SPANISH incorporates TPR into every. single. lesson.  ALL students can enjoy this fabulous “brain-switching” approach and the feeling of success it provides!  Nothing breeds success like success, after all.


Excelerate SPANISH then takes TPR a step further and adds the power of storytelling, activating the limbic system or “emotional memory.” The humorous skits and stories– accompanied by the “muscle memory” that TPR provides– make magical connections happen in the brain!

Whether your student is a visual, auditory, or kinesthetic learner–or has special needs or is gifted or is average–Excelerate SPANISH will empower, motivate, and optimize your success!

Parents, the best part is– ALL the work has been done for you. The Excelerate SPANISH lesson videos provide ALL the necessary instruction. You may even decide to learn Spanish along with your student– faster and easier than you ever thought possible!

  1. Good Evening,

    I am a homeschool mom and am looking for a Spanish program for my son. Would we be able to please try out a lesson? My son has autism and I’m pretty sure this is a good fit.

    Thanks so much,

    1. Hi Julie! Thanks so much for your interest in Excelerate Spanish. I have several lessons listed for FREE on the Teachers Pay Teachers website. These feature the same format and approach as the level 1 curriculum but are bible based. They should give you a feel for how well your son will respond to the program. Please visit to browse through the selections (scroll down a bit for the freebies).

  2. Hello. My child’s native language is English. She went to a total spanish immersion kindergarten. She’s now 6 in first grade at a dual language Spanish school. Should and can I teach her to read in both languages at the same time.? I want her fluent but also want her to be able to read well in both ? Thanks ❤️
