I’m Julie Schonauer and I teach German I-IV at New Philadelphia High School in northeastern Ohio. I’ve been using TPRS since I went to a one day Blaine Ray workshop way back in 1999 and saw the light on how foreign language could be taught. I’ve been trying to improve my craft every year since, though it’s such a steep learning curve sometimes for us die hard grammar lovers, linguists at heart, . . . But I discovered you on the TPRS Listserve a couple of years ago, and really liked your insightful posts. So I think it was last summer I bought both of your books, and have been conscientiously trying to implement many of your PQA in A Wink ideas in my GM I classes this year. The personalization factor is so hard and so key, hmm. I’m also trying to catch up on a lot of missed posts on your site – so much great stuff I’ve missed. I appreciate the honesty and integrity of everyone on the forum.
Thanks for doing this Ben.
