Principle and Practice in Second Language Acquisition.pdf
Portsmouth: Heinemann, by Stephen Krashen. But he ignores what to teachers is another obvious point: that some learners, given the richest of reading environments, still won't read much or read well, and, without the carrot-and-stick deductive setup that the traditional classroom provides, may not read anything at all. To the classroom teacher, perhaps the most frustrating part of accepting Krashen's theories completely is facing the constant onslaught, from adult learners, of legitimate grammatical questions, many of which are difficult for the native speaker to explain, and most of which would still be important, even if standardized tests were not in the picture. However, Krashen's enormous influence can be seen in second language classes worldwide, where many teachers refuse to explain grammar points, let alone teach them, because it's considered a waste of time if not counterproductive. While teachers and followers plug the leaks in the frameworks and curricula that his revolution has spawned, Krashen himself has begun looking back at his life and influence, trying to keep the revolution alive, and convince those pesky acquisitionists, who he perhaps hopes will come around if only they can be reminded again of what he feels should, by now, be considered obvious.

Although to the public, he may be better known for his defense of bilingual education, and to second language acquisitionists, he is scorned for the vagueness of his hypotheses, to classroom teachers, he has irrefutably changed language teaching more in the last thirty years than anyone in history. His five hypotheses of language acquisition are accepted as almost gospel by teachers worldwide; explicit grammar teaching has been dealt an almost-fatal blow; whole language approaches have ridden a strong wave for years; and free reading is considered by many to be the best route to fluency in a new language.
