Bertha Delgadillo is a teacher from Mexico currently teaching in Savannah, GA. She has been teaching for five years and has taught Spanish at all levels of the high school and has some middle school experience. Bertha is here today to share her story of shifting her classroom to using more Comprehensible Input (CI). See detailed shownotes at 

What does CI mean to Bertha?

  • Delivering messages the students can understand
  • Her job is to go slow, show pictures, and make sure students are acquiring input
  • Repeated exposure and compelling material is necessary


  • Martina Bex and the Comprehensible Classroom
  • Mis Clases Locas and Allison Weinhold
  • Many other blogs and Facebook communities
