What’s good about PPP?‘Logical’ approach
What’s good about PPP?Easy format forcourse books
Why does PPP have such bad press?
Delivers language in grammar ‘Mcnuggets’.
We’ve ‘done’ the                         present                        perfect….Tendency towards a linear view.
This isn’t how language is learnt.
It’s more ofan organicprocess..
Very narrow focus – no room forother, useful language
Very narrow focus –practice contextscan be a bit forced/inauthentic
Predictable format….therefore boring…..
Often major focus is on controlled practice.
Is it really bad?      It depends on how          you do it….

  • @jeanius Hi Jean - thank you for your kind feedback - glad that you find the videos helpful! The slides for them are all on Slideshare and you are welcome to download and use them. 'Glamp' is supposed to mislead - there isn't an equivalent word in English, but it's just to make the point that a word that learners might assume in translation may have different semantic boundaries which will cause them to mis-use it. (actually, 'glamp' now means 'glamorous/ up market camping' so perhaps I should change the made-up word to something else!)

  • Thank you Jo. I too am a Celta trainer and have found your webinars great as consolidation to what I do. Are there also slides to go with those webinars? btw I looked at that 'glamping' thingie and I'd have put in crash too, what is it supposed to be? You are doing excellent work....well done. :-)

  • This is something that I've often thought, too - but there are some differences. In TTT the initial task tends to be a smaller part of the lesson than in TBL and in TBL there is a rehearsal and performance stage that isn't in TTT. Potentially, a difference may lie in whether or not the language to be introduced is pre-planned or not (it definitely is with TTT but may come more from the emergent language of the learners in TBL). There are certainly a lot of similarities, though. I think that the bottom line is that you don't need to follow any particular structure rigidly, perhaps....

  • For me, TBL and TTT are very very similar.
