Chomsky is undoubtedly one of the most important linguists from the 50's and 60'. He's credited to have challenged the traditional view that languages should be described in the performative act. According to him, language should be understood as a human competence. However, his ideas are limited if we compare them to modern linguistics.
He completely disregards the fact that language is essentially a social factor. Obviously, human beings have the ability to speak a language because they are human beings, this is a biological issue. On the other hand, human beings would never acquire language if they lived apart from the other members of their group. Unlike arms, legs and teeth, language only evolves in humans if they interact with each other.
Chomsky has never written about language education! His contribution to teaching lays on the shift from behaviourism to cognitivism which was borrowed from educators. Communicative Language Teaching is much more complex!
