I loved the idea! I do believe this is good talk but short talk too...

I believe that TTT might be necessary when ELICITING, PERSONALIZING (students love stories about teachers), PRESENTING, GIVING FEEDBACK, PLAYING WITH THE STUDENTS.

I agree. I even think that if your English is GOOD (pronunciation) you can also read or talk about something instead of working with scripts (recordings)

Teachers in Argentina work with songs and scripts (natives talking) so as to have students listen to different pronunciations and to GOOD English so I do believe that TTT might be useful. We teachers need to know when to stop talking, when to encourage speaking and when to avoid repetition. We might need to paraphrase and repeat, though.
