Input processing models of SLA Comprehension-based models – Krashen (1985) Processing-based models – Van Patten (1996) – Schmidt (1990)
Input Processing Principles (Van Patten, 1996) Principle 1: learners process input for meaning before they process it for form Principle 2: For learners to process form that is not meaningful, they must be able to process informational or communicational content at no or little cost to attentional resources Principle 3: Learners possess default input processing strategies
