The sample for this study included 44 undergraduate foreign students (aged 18-22) from Sichuan University of Science and Engineering. Students were selected using a simple random sampling technique. Each consisting of 45 students with no significant oral proficiency differences. Post-teaching, oral scores of both groups are compared. The findings showed that 1) Improved oral scores for both classes post-teaching, with significant differences favoring the experimental group, demonstrating TPRS's efficacy in enhancing oral proficiency. 2) The student's level of satisfaction toward the TPRS teaching method was at the highest level.
