Humans acquire language in only one way-
by understanding messages or by receiving "comprehensible input". Stephen Krashen How do we acquire language? 1.comprehensible input 3. No necessary difficult input. i (current knowledge) + 1 (extra input) Language is developed in “two distinct and independent ways” when the input is understood, i+1 will be provided automatically. 2. Comprehensible input should be (1) one step beyond the learner’s(i) current language ability in order to allow learners to continue to progress with their language development. Input hypothesis highlights the importance of using the target language in the classroom.  The goal of any language program is for learners to be able to communicate effectively by providing as much comprehensible input as possible, especially in situations when learners are not exposed to the TL outside of the classroom, the teacher is able to create a more effective opportunity for language acquisition.
