Top!

Availability information for this program

TOP! is a lively and entertaining game show format. TOP! simplifies learning a foreign language -- and motivates student viewers to practice the language by joining in. Programs have been carefully devised to introduce and test basic language skills -- with the linguistic content constantly reinforced by visuals and repetition. The fast-paced game show models various levels of fluency by combining teams of proficient student speakers with beginners. The engaging host, who is fluent, helps the contestants through a variety of games, such as quizzes, memory games, and cooking challenges, most of which are played against the clock. Programs combine the three language skills of listening, speaking and reading, and basic subtitles in the target language appear during the games to aid comprehension.
