The Implicit Versus Explicit Division in Language Learning Theory, Method, and Practice.
Lally, Carolyn G.
Unterrichtspraxis/Teaching German, v31 n2 p154-59 Aut 1998
The issue of implicit-versus-explicit grammar instruction in second-language-acquisition study has produced the unwanted side-effect of dividing the language learning profession into two camps. This article reviews the depth of this schism by investigating the implicit-versus-explicit division as it exists in both theory and in the German language classroom, and argues for a less restrictive discussion of in-class grammar.
