Krashen's theory of second language acquisition

From Teflpedia

Krashen's theory of second language acquisition is a theory of second language acquisition proposed by Stephen Krashen in the 1980s that consists of five core hypotheses.

It consists of five main hypotheses: the acquisition-Learning hypothesis, the monitor hypothesis, the natural order hypothesis, the comprehensible input hypothesis, and the affective filter hypothesis.[1]

In developing his theory, Krashen acknowledges "those scholars whose work has stimulated my own thinking in the early stages of the research reported on here: John Upshur, Leonard Newmark, and S. Pit Corder all recognized the reality of language "acquisition" in the adult long before I did".[2]
