I think the TPR method is a good way to learn Japanese. I have learn that human brain and the body need to work together to show the respond physically. Students show that they understand the language by doing actions. First, the students have to listen carefully and then try to speak on their own. Next, they give commands to each other in groups and respond physically. The TPR method has no exercise or reading but that isn’t a problem because the goal is only to listen and speak.
