Abstract: The process of language learning has been influenced by various theories of learning proposed by several theorists from time to time. The major theories are: behaviourism, innatism or congnitivism and constructivism. Behaviourism emphasizes the role of imitation in the process of acquiring language. Behaviourists believe that learning is an observable behaviour, acquired automatically from stimulus and response through mechanical repetition. Hence, as per behaviourism, L2 learning is nothing more than acquiring automatic linguistic habits. Innatism highlights the cognitive abilities of the human brain and claims that all humans have been endowed with an innate system, used in acquiring knowledge of a language which is termed as language acquisition device (LAD). However, these theories fell short in explaining the process of SLA. As a result, constructivist theory emerged in the field of language learning which emphasizes the role of social interaction in the learning of second or foreign language. This paper aims to discuss the theories of learning and their impact on SLA at length.
Keywords: Language learning, SLA, behaviourism, cognitivism, constructivism, interactionism
