Teaching Proficiency Through Reading and Storytelling

Today I am glad to show you the very interesting work of Adriana Ramirez.
She offers what I define the best way to make school: teaching Spanish with reading and storytelling (TPRS).
I found it very good even watching her clips.
Here is a description from the youtube channel: TPRS is a fun, amazing, and powerful way to learn languages. The results we get when teaching with this method are incredible! In these videos I am teaching first year Spanish students who are in grade 9. These students have never been exposed to Spanish before. In our school, we work on the semester system, and this is week 10 into the 18-week semester. Each video is part of the whole TPRS cycle (teaching one story). I use the stories in the textbook that I wrote for first year Spanish: Teaching Spanish with Comprehensible Input Through Storytelling, and Learning Spanish with Comprehensible Input Through Storytelling. I also published books for Grade 10. Books for Grades 11 & 12 are well on their way.

And here is a video:
