2016 Workshop Information

The 2016 edition of the Agen Workshop is off to a flying start.  I’ve already posted about the wonderful people who have agreed to come and there’s not much I can add about them, except that I am flattered and moved by their trust. In the Netherlands in November I attended the launching of TPRS Academy and met a dynamic group of TPRS teachers who are coming to Agen this year. I am getting a lot of requests for more information about the workshop.

So here is the information I promised to post.

In order to accomodate more presenters than we’ve had in the past, and also to include the price of the final meal, we are raising the price by 30 euros.

The workshop price does not include other meals or accomodation. The workshop will be held in the Lycée Saint Caprais, a private school just a block from the train station. It is in downtown Agen, within a reasonable walking distance of the train station. Participants can find accomodation at several centrally located hotels or through Airnb. I will post links to the tourist information and the hotels later. Stim’otel is offering a special rate for workshop participants. In the past I arranged for some participants to be hosted, but we are getting too big for that. If you have been hosted in the past, I suggest you contact your former host and make private arrangements. Otherwise, there is now Airnb which lists quite a few reasonably priced offers in Agen. Just be sure that you can walk to the downtown area of Agen and do not need a car. I have posted on the TPRS Witch Facebook page a list of hotels that are in walking distance.

If you have any questions, post them here or on the Facebook page.

    Ben is one of the best French as a foreign language teachers I have ever observed! I observed many brilliant TCI (teaching with comprehensible input) classrooms in French and Spanish in Denver, Colorado. I observed a super one in German in Colorado Springs too. Michael Miller is a SUPER TPRS teacher in German!
