In this chapter one of the key components of Processability Theory for classroom applications is introduced: Teaching a foreign language is constrained by the PT hierarchy. This has been known as the “Teachability Hypothesis” introduced by Pienemann in 1984. This chapter summarizes the Teachability Hypothesis and discusses the role of input and output in foreign language classrooms from a PT perspective. The chapter concludes by a discussion of developmentally moderated approaches to foreign language teaching and shows that PT accounts for innovative approaches to focus on form and TBLT.
