Wu Yanmin, Peng Yi
Abstract
Since Swain proposed the theory of output hypothesis in 1985, the study focus of foreign language teaching has been shifted from input research to input and output research. The positive impact of output has been demonstrated by a large number of studies and output has been received more and more attention in the field of second language acquisition. This paper sorts out the development and application of output hypothesis theory in foreign language teaching in order to lay the foundation for further exploration.
