"I studied Spanish at the MTSU Summer Language Institute . . . and found the class to be animated, entertaining and upbeat, plus, students learned a lot of Spanish without true studying!  The class is actually fun — More than once, we laughed until we cried!  I've always disliked learning new languages, and have felt badly about my lack of ability to learn languages.  My experience with TPR and TPRS has changed that!  Because students at different levels can work to their own capacity in the same class, I've taken three beginning TPR/TPRS classes in the last 18 months, and I learned a lot more Spanish each time.  TPRS is an incredibly effective and well-researched method of learning languages.

Several teens enjoyed the Language Institute last summer.  They found that the TPRS class complemented more traditional classroom learning.  Teens who had completed a year or two of high school Spanish told me that a week of TPRS gave them the confidence to begin speaking Spanish at restaurants, the skill to begin reading Spanish, and helped them make numerous new connections in the Spanish language."  --Jane Hardy, University School of Nashville
