By explaining the definition of input and interaction hypothesis, the paper elaborates the theory that both input and interactional modifications facilitate second language acquisition. Résumé: En expliquant la définition de l'input et l'hypothèse de l'interaction, l'article élabore une théorie selon laquelle l'input et des modifications d'interaction peuvent faciliter l'acquisition d'une deuxième langue.

Considerable attention has also been directed towards the role of interaction with respect to the conditions considered theoretically important for SLA, such as the learner's comprehension of input, access to feedback, and production of modified output (cf., for recent reviews). The role of interaction has long been central to the study of language acquisition theory. The precise role of interaction in actual development and internalization of L2 knowledge has continued to challenge researchers.
