Abstract
This paper mainly discusses Krashen’s theory of second language acquisition (SLA), especially his hypotheses, and their application into vocabulary learning and teaching during college oral English courses. By presenting the importance of oral English teaching and learning, and the present situation of vocabulary teaching at college level, a course design is proposed based on Krashen’s theory; and then the method of empirical analysis and comparative study in real-world classroom setting are adopted to draw the conclusion that Krashen’s theory is highly effective in instructing vocabulary teaching and learning in college oral English courses.
