She brings the robot out to the garage. The garage is VERY dirty! The robot cleans and cleans and cleans until he runs out of battery. The dad is annoyed because he has to buy a new battery for the robot.

I teach this story with TPRS®, a method developed by Blaine Ray.
This story provides input that is comprehensible, engaging, and carefully structured to include lots of repetition. I have been using TPRS® in my classes since 2007 and have found it to be a highly successful method for learning languages. I have used TPRS® with preschool through adult classes and have found that learners of all ages are captivated by stories.
