"What about accent?" by Stephen Krashen

Honored with the recognition of events of Cultural Interest by the Municipality of General Pueyrredón, Argentina in 2021. Organized by Sharing Materials Events 2021

✅ Duration: 1h 30'

✅Target Audience: English Language Professionals & Advanced Language Users


Most people assume that we can develop “better” accents by hard work and study. This assumption is not supported by research: “Accent improvement” has very limited effects.

The hypothesis presented here is that accent is a marker of “club membership” – we sound like people in a group we belong to. We acquire accents quickly and well, but we do not use all the accents we have acquired because we do not feel like full members of the group that uses it.

✅About the speaker

Stephen Krashen is a linguist, educational researcher and professor emeritus at the University of Southern California. He has worked in the faculty of Education from 1994. Professor Krashen received a PhD. in Linguistics from the University of California, Los Angeles in 1972.

He has among papers and books, more than 500 publications, contributing to the fields of second-language acquisition, bilingual education, and reading.

He is known for introducing various hypotheses related to second-language acquisition, including the acquisition-learning hypothesis, the input hypothesis, the monitor hypothesis, the affective filter, and the natural order hypothesis.

Most recently, Krashen promotes the use of free voluntary reading during second-language acquisition, which he says "is the most powerful tool we have in language education, first and second”.
