    摘要: The purposes of this paper were to explore teachers’ and students’ beliefs on language acquisition, and to examine if theoretical approaches of language learning coincided with teachers’ and students’ beliefs. 20 English instructors and 204 students from a university in southern Taiwan participated in this study. Lightbown and Spada’s (2004) 12-item questionnaire was used in this survey. The results revealed that teachers’ opinions were divided on the following three issues: (1) parents usually correct young children when they make grammatical errors, (2) the earlier a second language is introduced in school programs, the greater the likelihood of success in learning, and (3) students learn what they are taught. Teachers conformed to students on all items except that: (1) teachers should present grammatical rules one at a time, and learners should practice examples of each one before going on to another, and (2) teachers should use materials that expose students to only those language structures which they have already been taught. Teachers dissented from these two issues more than students did. Further, most teachers’ and students’ beliefs diverged from theoretical view that Lightbown and Spada (2004) raised. Most teachers and students tend to be behaviorism supporters based on the results of this study.
