The purpose of the present work is to develop and apply a curriculum design to teach English language where the Total Physical Response or TPR was chosen as a main method. This project was devoted to children from sixth grade of primary at Villa Alemania Fe y Alegria School, and it is divided in five chapters. Firstly, the Chapter number one describes the characteristics of the institution where this project was applied. It means a brief history of the school, its organization, and needs which were the central points to develop our objectives. The second Chapter refers to the Proposal Section where the justification, objectives, and theoretical reference are explained. The theoretical framework not only takes into account the characteristics of curriculum design, but also considers Total Physical Response concepts.

Finally, in the last Chapter, conclusions and recommendations are mentioned. Key words: TPR: Curriculum Design, Total Physical Response, Method, PPP: Presentation, Production and Practice, Adaptation.
