  1. A few years after I became a Spanish teacher, I learned about TPRS/CI. Since then I have been to a workshop and the National TPRS Conference and it was fabulous! I started working CI into my teaching and I stay in touch with other CI teachers through the iFLT/NTPRS/CI Teaching group on Facebook and also Teaching ESL/EFL/ Through CI on Facebook.

    1. Charlotte – I’m so glad you found out about tprs/ci as well. That changed my life and my teaching as well. I think we are a growing movement, but still small. I am using Pablo’s Dreaming Spanish videos to acquire Spanish and keeping track of the number of hours (1 1/2 to 2) a day that I allocate to spanish input via reading, MOSTLY podcasts and Pablo’s videos. I am my experiment.
