ABSTRACT

As the world is becoming highly digitalized and globalized, more and more people are becoming aware of the importance of a second language. Lots of linguistic researches are carried out to figure out the most effective way for second language acquisition (SLA). Based on extensive reading and discussion, this review will mainly analyze an empirical study "The Impact of Instruction and Out-of-School Exposure to Foreign Language Input on Learners' Vocabulary Knowledge in Two Languages" which intends to discuss the importance of formal language instruction as well as the necessity of out-of-school exposure for second language acquisition. Although the essential role of intentional learning in the traditional classroom and the effective language input out of school are highlighted, the limitations of this study will also be pointed out.
