THE LANGUAGE THEATER GRAMMAR TEXTBOOK
Visual learner or ESL? TLT is your dream come true!
"THE LANGUAGE THEATER immediately gets on a child's wavelength...there is a spirit of play and the balance between the significance of grammar and the fun pictorial examples is exceptional. Here, children can assimilate the concepts much more readily vs. a text-only approach." (Amazon Review)
What TLT will do for you:
As a student, you can read TLT like a storybook or stop and absorb. The whimsical, fun pictures of each Part of Speech "Actor" makes it easy to learn who is who and what they do and bit by bit, who they interact with.
As a teacher, it is all there for you. Look at the pictures with your students and ask them questions. It is direct and simple.
As a parent, you can read the book with your child and enjoy how well you, who may have not studied grammar, understand because it is so intuitive.
It was inspired by something a teacher of Maria's quoted to her when she was a teenager:
“Language is a theater. The words are the actors.” Denis Diderot, 18th Century Philosopher
In this “visual learning environment”, THE LANGUAGE THEATER “acts out” Diderot’s theme. Our parts–of-speech “actors” perform and make you smile as you learn how the English language works through these "theatrical” picture lessons.
