Second Language Acquisition and Second Language Learning
by Stephen D. Krashen
This book presents the first comprehensive theory of adult second language acquisition. Stephen D. Krashen's 'Monitor Theory'. Based on the important acquisition-learning distinction (which Earl Stevick has described as 'potentially the most fruitful concept for language teachers that has come out of the linguistic sciences during my professional lifetime...') Krashen's theory provides new insight into all areas of second language research and practice. Topics covered include the acquisition of grammatical structures, the role of affective variables, aptitude, individual variation, age differences, and, most important, teaching methodology.
