Abstract
TPR and TPRS enjoy worldwide popularity among language instructors. An empirical research was carried out in a Summer Program targeting children and teenagers followed by another study targeting adults. The learning results are productive with the overall development of learners' language abilities, which leads to the conclusion that the two language teaching methods are effective for teaching Chinese as a foreign language on a short term basis. However, the instructors face great challenges in application and further studies are required.
