Jen is this the article? I don’t think it is. I’ll keep looking.
Here are some talking points you might consider using during a job interview:
(1) I teach language using a methodology based on the research of Dr. Stephen Krashen on language acquisition, in particular his Comprehensible Input Theory, which states that people acquire language only when they are attending to compelling comprehensible input. This idea was revolutionary to me. It means that output activities, such as speaking and writing, do not in themselves facilitate acquisition; rather, students will only acquire when they are listening or reading. Furthermore, a “sink or swim” immersion model does not particularly facilitate acquisition, as the input needs to be comprehensible to the student.
