How to teach beginners a language in the target language

4 months ago
My student Heiti has been learning Mandarin with me for a month, and this video was recorded on his week 2-3ish with me. He had never learned Mandarin before. Check out and see how we managed to speak Mandarin only in the class.

I use Comprehensible input, to be more specific is TPRS- Teaching Proficiency through Reading and Storytelling

'Comprehensible input is language input that can be understood by listeners despite them not understanding all the words and structures in it. It is described as one level above that of the learners if it can only just be understood. According to Krashen's theory of language acquisition, giving learners this kind of input helps them acquire language naturally, rather than learn it consciously.'
