KRASHEN'S THEORY OF SECOND LANGUAGE LEARNING
Transcript of KRASHEN'S THEORY OF SECOND LANGUAGE LEARNING
The Acquisition - Learning Hypothesis
The product of a subconscious process
The result of natural interaction with the target language via meaningful communication.
The Monitor Hypothesis
only one function:
The Natural Order Hypothesis
The acquisition of grammatical structures follows a 'natural order' which is predictable
- Concerned only with acquisition
The Affective Filter Hypothesis
The product of a conscious process which results in conscious knowledge “about” the formal properties of language, as for example the grammar rules.
The result of formal instruction

WHO? -----> children
WHERE? --> natural environment
WHY? -----> need to communicate
WHAT? ---> form
WHO? -----> adults
WHERE? --> classroom
WHY? -----> willingness

Proposed a Theory of Second Language Acquisition
the Acquisition-Learning hypothesis
the Monitor hypothesis
the Natural Order hypothesis
the Input hypothesis
the Affective Filter hypothesis
initiates UTTERANCES. Fluency
Used to explain Individual Differences
Monitor "over- users"
Monitor "under- users"
"Optimal" monitor users
-Learner improves and progresses
along "natural order"
when he/she receives
i + 1
Learner´s current competence
If INPUT is
not useful for acquisition
The Input Hypothesis
Too vague and imprecise
If input is understood and enough
necessary grammar is provided
When it´s low
when its high
How the affective Filter works
it prevents input from being acquired
it allows language acquisition to take place
Wow.. she sure is using a lot of Spanish.. She NEVER speaks in English anymore
Uh...oh...she is calling on people...please not me, please not me.
Oh thank goodness... it wasn't me... this time
Oh.. I understand that... and that.
I think she is talking about the weekend... yeah definitely future tense...
How would I say that... yo tengo...no... yo soy... ah... there is no way I can talk without practising in my head first...
