The Affective Filter Hypothesis
One of Krashen's Hypothesis
Most affective variables favoring second language
Why I choose this hypothesis....
I love how it talked about student motivation. It's so hard to teach someone who doesn't want to be there. If the student is motivated and eager to learn, it makes it a lot easier for them. They want to learn the language, they'll be willing to do whatever it takes.
It's important that students have self confidence. I know that when I don't feel confident in a task I'm doing, it shows. We need to build our students up so they are confident in all that they do. I believe that when you are confident in what you're doing, you will succeed.
