emphasis on the communication of
messages that are comprehensible,
include strategies that allow people to acquire a second language
in an implicit way (Krashen, 1985, p.7). “Since acquisition is central to developing communication skills, the great majority
of class time is devoted to activities which provide input for acquisition”.
(Krashen, 1980, p.58) ‘Affective Filter’:
“a metaphorical barrier that prevents learners from acquiring language even when appropriate input is available". (Lightbown and Spada, 2006, p.37) “The Input Hypothesis claims that humans acquire language only one way – by understanding messages, or by receiving ‘comprehensible input’” (Krashen, 1985, p.2). Listening Comprehension
students at this level are just beginning
their acquisition process and they go through a silent
period, which means that the teacher must not oblige them
to speak before they are ready.
Besides, during the first hours of the class,
the teacher must carry out activities in
which the students do not have to reply in the target language, they just have to imitate the teacher and try to understand the second language. Apart from that, the activities and the teacher should provide lots of comprehensible input in order to be more understandable. (Krashen & Terrel, 1995, p.76). Early production:
At this stage, the responses of the students are longer compared to the ones made in the first stage. For instance, if the teacher asks “who has on a blue dress?” the students may answer “Emily has dress” instead of just “Emily”. Once the longer responses start to appear, they come naturally and abundantly, especially if the teacher provides a comfortable environment in which students can answer freely without being punished or embarrassed (Richard-Amato, 2003, p. 180). Extending production:
“errors are still made but, if enough comprehensible input has been internalized, they should gradually decrease as the students move toward full production” (Richard-Amato, 2003, p. 185). The main objective of the “Escuela Hospitalaria de Valdivia” is to give schooling opportunities to children who have to stay in “Hospital Regional de Valdivia”, due to their treatments and pathologies, and to help them not to fall behind their studies, so they will be able to return to their regular schools as soon as they get better or when their treatments finish (N. Bucarey, IDI, August 31st, 2012). The English subject has been taught at the “Escuela Hospitalaria de Valdivia” since 2010, however, it has just included students from fifth to eighth grade. That is to say, students from pre-school to fourth grade that attend the Hospital School have not received knowledge regarding the English subject (J. Flies, IDI, August 24th, 2012). Bell, J.
