  • Monitor Theory
    • natural order
    acquisition-learning input monitor affective filter
  • Acquisition-Learning Hypothesis Two separate processes LEARNING ACQUISITION Subconscious Similar to first language Communication not correctness Fluency Conscious Structured teaching Knowledge (eg grammatical rules) Accuracy
  • Monitor Hypothesis Learning can support acquisition by checking and correcting communication ACQUISITION LEARNING
