Formal and Informal Linguistic Environments in Language Acquisition and Language Learning
Krashen, Stephen D.
TESOL Quarterly, 10, 2, 157-168, Jun 76
Evidence is presented to support the hypothesis that informal and formal environments contribute to different aspects of second language competence, the former affecting acquired competence and the latter affecting learned competence. Data is presented that suggests that the classroom can be used simultaneously as a formal and informal linguistic environment. (Author/RM)
