improvement of three skills, except writing

grammar inclusion
lengthen the experiment
lower level Informal setting: study abroad
Upshur (1968): no significant effects on language learning attributable to the amount of language instruction
Communicative use of the language
Krashen: exposure-type and intake-type
Terrel (1971): a natural approach in an elementary school (Spanish)
Suozzo (1981): culture-oriented, not completely exclude grammar (French) Differences:
