This year we are being honored by the presence of Blaine Ray, the man who invented TPRS, Diane Neubauer and Mike Coxon from the United States, Charlotte Dinscher from Germany, Kristin Plane and Iris Maas from the Netherlands, Sabrina Sebban-Janczak from France, Alina Filipescu from Roumania, Cathy Bu from Australia, Marguerita Perez-Garcia from Venezuela by way of New Zealand, Jayne Cooke from Great Britain and of course, the wonderful Beniko Mason Nanki from Japan. Agen is the truly international conference where people from around the world come together in harmony and share their ideas, talk over their difficulties and leave with renewed faith in human nature.
Teachers intent on counting reps forgot that input must always be compelling. If your students’ eyes have glazed over, you may as well stop circling.
I am grateful to Beniko Mason Nanki for presenting teachers around the world with an elegant and easy to use strategy that allows us to immerse our students in compelling comprehensible input.
