LIVE FROM THE U.S.A

Friday 17 July 2020 11 am to 12 pm (Australian Eastern Standard Time)

    TOPIC:

Language acquisition: Some fundamentals.

We acquire language not when we speak it or study about it, but when we understand messages that we hear and read, when we get “comprehensible input.” “Optimal input’ is not only comprehensible but is also highly interesting, rich in language, and supplied in abundance. The most effective (and most pleasant) methods begin with stories and then move to reading, providing students with large quantities of interesting and comprehensible texts. Our goal is to bring students to the point where they can self-select their own reading and improve on their own.

      Dr Krashen is Professor Emeritus at the University of Southern California.

      He has published more than 350 papers and books about second-language acquisition, bilingual education, and reading. He introduced several important ideas in the study of learning another language including the acquisition-learning hypothesis, input hypothesis, monitor hypothesis, affective filter, and the natural order hypothesis. He started the Natural Approach to language learning and teaching with Tracy D. Terrell . More recently, Krashen promotes the use of free voluntary reading during second-language acquisition, which he says "is the most powerful tool we have in language education, first and second."
