Is there any role for learning in the language classroom? We know that language is acquired—not learned—by means of Comprehensible Input, and that everyone in the world acquires their first language without any effortful learning at all.
By now you have probably heard of “insert language acquisition theory here” and “insert teaching methodology here” and how each of them will revolutionize your teaching and maximize whatever it is you want/need to be maximizing, or at least make it easier for you.
More and more, the language teaching community is becoming aware of how important input is, how important it is for students to be exposed to the spoken language, and for teachers to speak in the target language to their students. In our attempt to be useful as teachers, we try to provide students with activities that will help them learn the language.
