Second Language Acquisition Theory and English Speaking Teaching

Junbo Lei


Based on the second language acquisition theory, this paper simply introduced Krashen's the "Acquisition-Input" Hypothesis and the Affective Filter Hypothesis, and proposed to apply the second language acquisition theory to English speaking teaching, considering the status quo and existing problems of English speaking teaching in colleges and universities, in order to improve the students' English speaking competence by means of comprehensible input, good teacher-student relationship, and efficient output training and thus enhance the quality of English speaking teaching.
