Summary
"Here, readers can follow Krashen as he -reviews the fundamentals of second-language acquisition theory -presents some of the original research supporting the theory and more recent studies - offers counterarguments to critcisms -explorers new areas that have promise for progress in both theory and application. An invaluable resource on the results of Krashen's many years of research and application, this book covers a wide range of topics: from the role of the input/comprehension hypothesis (and its current rival-the comprehensible output hypothesis), the still very-good idea of free voluntary reading, and current issues and controveries about teaching grammarm to considerations of how it is we grow intellectually, or how we "get smart". back cover
