Krashen and Terrell 1983


Krashen, Stephen D. and Tracy D. Terrell. 1983. The natural approach: Language acquisition in the classroom. Hayward, CA: Alemany Press. 183pp.


A summary of the "natural approach" to language acquisition. Comparison of the natural approach with other methodologies and theories. Applying the natural approach: planning, guidelines, activities, etc.


This was one of the very influential books published by Krashen and Terrell in the eighties. Many language curricula were rewritten on the basis of this book, which alone makes it worth reading. It gives a good summary of Krashen's basic premises.
