The correct answer is Total Physical Response, the total physical response (TPR) was developed by James Asher, a professor emeritus of psychology at San Jose State University.

The total physical response is a language teaching method that is based on the coordination of language and physical movement. During a total response class, the teachers give the command, and the students respond with their whole-body action. The total physical response is a valuable way of learning vocabulary, especially idiomatic terms.

The total physical response is a method with a comprehensive approach to language teaching. The process involves: listening and responding. Listening and responding are ways to quickly recognizing meaning in the language being learned.
