Ben’s PLC Is The Place Where Teachers Serious About Learning CI and TPRS Hang Out And Learn Together…
Ben’s Professional Learning Community is the place where Ben shares his newest thoughts and training on Comprehensible Input (CI) and TPRS. This private membership allows Ben and the teachers who are members to share information without the risk of attack, which did happen when Ben had a public blog.
This is the only private TPRS community of it’s kind in the world!

This Sounds Great! But How Much Does It Cost?
You might think that training like this would cost hundreds of dollars. After all, going to a National Conference DOES cost you hundreds of dollars for admission, travel, lodging, and food.
Some might think that a membership like this where you get access to the training and community 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, would at least be worth the cost of dinner and a movie.
The good news for you is when you become a member of Ben’s PLC, you won’t pay hundreds of dollars, and you won’t pay $40 a month, or $20 a month, or even $10 a month.
When you join the PLC, it’s only $4.95 a month for 100% access.
Now you can get training just like you’d get at a national conference for a fraction of the price, and in the comfort of your own home!
And instead of only attending 1 conference a year, you can now get ONGOING training throughout the year!
Ben priced the PLC membership at $4.95/month so that EVERY teacher can afford to be a member. If you are serious about becoming a better CI teacher, then you are going to LOVE Ben’s Professional Learning Community.
Common Questions and Answers
Q. Why should I pay for training?
A. Because coaching and training from an expert is not free. National conferences aren’t free. We’ve also found that when it’s free, teachers place no value on the training. At $4.95/month, the PLC membership is as close to free as possible. The PLC membership offers training from an expert that is not found anywhere else. A teacher serious about CI and TPRS will find this membership to be an incredible value.
Q. What will I learn?
A. Ben is teaching cutting edge CI protocols to help you become a better teacher in the classroom.
Q. Why isn’t this training offered anywhere else on the internet?
A. It doesn’t exist. Ben has added a lot to what TPRS used to be. Moreover, he has a unique way of illustrating and defining the smallest details of CI and TPRS so that they can be easily understood. Ben’s ideas frame and define the method to make it really work for teachers. Ben dissolves the mystery of CI/TPRS and shows teachers how to make it work in their classrooms.
There are over 4000 articles and 12,000 comments from some of the most experienced CI and TPRS teachers in the world There are new and original ideas added by Ben on a regular basis.
Q. What is the most important thing that group members feel that they get from this membership?
A. Beyond the training, it’s the sense of community that they get whenever they log on. It is no secret that bringing something really fresh and new into education is not always greeted by open arms. It is in this community where the trust and support necessary to grow safely into the method can be found.
Q. So the sense of community is the big thing offered here?
A. Look at it this way. When you are switching to a new way of teaching it’s not easy to do alone. You will find it nice to be working with other like minded teachers as you improve your CI teaching skills.
As a member of the PLC, you can log in on a daily basis and check in with friends who are going through the same things that you are in their classrooms and everyone can talk about it. This is especially important for teachers who are new to the method.
Q. What kind of teachers join this community?
A. Teachers that want to improve their CI teaching skills. The site is not for people who need convincing. Ben wants to work hard for people who have already made the decision to teach this way and who refuse to go back to the old ways of teaching.
Q. Any guarantees?
A. Go to the membership sign up page of this website and try it for a month. If you don’t see the value, just cancel with PayPal and send Ben an email for a refund of your first month’s subscription.
