Affective Filter hypothesis

From Teflpedia
(Redirected from Affective filter)

The affective filter, part of Stephen Krashen's theory of second language acquisition,[1] is a hypothesised impediment to learning brought about by a negative emotional state - such as embarrassment or self consciousness.

Teachers are encouraged to help students to overcome affective filters by motivating students, removing stress from environments, and by improving learners' self-esteem.
