The work with non-targeted instruction (NTCI) that we are doing right now has brought immediate and positive change to many of our careers.
We finally have a real and authentic part to play in what is going on now in foreign language education. Why authentic? Because I can say that NTCI is based fully in the research, unlike anything I’ve personally ever done before, namely traditional and TPRS.
Blaine originally had TPRS fully aimed directly at the research, but over the years the target shifted and bent his vision away from the research to what made money and what traditional teachers could handle. No blame. It’s what happened. But TPRS is more unwieldy than NTCI.
