Assunto:  Explorations in Language Acquisition
Mensagem:  I have finished reading “Explorations in Language Acquisition” (2003) by Stephen Krashen.
One statement on the book was very intriguing to me. It says that “speaking” per se
does not cause language acquisition, but it can invite others to talk to you, and it can
lower the affective filter by making the speaker feel more like a member of the group
that speaks the language.

If that is true, would it be possible to acquire the language only with “rich” comprehensible
input listening and/or reading activities?

I appreciate any comments.
