Words of Wisdom from Stephen Krashen

Talking about ways to Improve Spelling & better Language Teaching:

“Ironically, dumping vocabulary and spelling tests can result in better vocabulary and spelling development.  No testing means no time devoted to studying word lists, time that can be devoted to reading, and better vocabulary and spelling development.”


“The problem here is that the reaching profession is controlled by outsiders, by amateurs, a situation unheard of in other professions.  It is as if hospital administrators dictated to surgeons how to operate.  We simply need to take control.”
