Het Monitor Model
Krashen's Theorie Voor T2-Verwerving
In this article Krashen's Monitor Model is discussed. The working of the Model is explained and the criticism of McLaughlin and Sajavaara are discussed. It is argued that the Monitor Model can be seen only as a first attempt to get a better insight into the processes that play a part in a second language acquisition, and furthermore that there are still a lot of questions left to be answered, of which the most important are: (a) Is Krashen's distinction between acquisition and learning real? (b) And if so, how can this distinction be proven?
