One Word Pictures

One Word Pictures

This is a low stress, slowed down way of delivering CI, sort of like TPRS (and it can become that) and sort of like PQA.  You put one new word on the board with its English meaning.  And then, you start asking questions about it.  Where is it?  Who is it?  What does it do?  etc.  Every time you ask a question about it, you are doing a repetition.  They will only be able to respond with things they already know, so it’s all understandable messages in the target language.  You may just go as far as you can go and then put up another word, or you may find that there is potential for a story around this one word, and it becomes a TPRS session in which you ask a story.
