K-12 PD Webinar 14: Comprehensible Input as the Most Important Factor in Language Acquisition

K-12 PD Webinar 14: Comprehensible Input as the Most Important Factor in Language Acquisition

Presentation Description

We “acquire” (not “learn”) language when we understand what we hear and what we read, when we get “comprehensible input.” We do not acquire language when we speak, write or study it. Effective methods supply interesting and comprehensible input, often in the form of stories (otherwise known as “literature” and “fiction”). Stephen Krashen’s input hypothesis is one of the most influential theories of second language acquisition. In this webinar, Prof. Stephen Krashen will explain why Comprehensible Input is the most important factor in learning another language.
