Less is known about how teachers go about the business of teaching new words as they read aloud. Read-alouds for language learners provide a source of comprehensible input that support the development of a second language, according to Krashen’s input comprehension hypothesis and acquisition hypothesis (Krashen ). The Structure of Read-Aloud. Read-aloud provides the students access to good reading strategies.
