Temple University Japan:
Current Controversies and Some Conjectures
Date: Saturday, July 6th, 2002 Time: 2:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Speaker: Stephen Krashen, University of Southern California
This seminar by Stephen Krashen will briefly cover the (overwhelming) evidence for the input (or "comprehension" hypotheses) as well as the lack of evidence supporting its two major rivals: the skill building hypothesis and the comprehensible output hypothesis. In addition, I will discuss an idea for which there is little evidence but promises to contribute to theory and practice: sheltered popular literature. Finally, I will discuss a conjecture for which there is practically no evidence: language acquisition, when done the natural way, is not only pleasant, it is (mildly) ecstatic.
