Abstract

Input and interaction have long been identified as crucial in acquiring a second language. The amount of input received and interaction engaged in play significant roles in assisting second-language learners to learn the target language. Despite the awareness of many regarding the significant roles played by input and interaction in second-language acquisition, there is a lack of studies conducted to examine how English as a second language (ESL) learners perceive the input that they receive in their attempt to learn English as well as how they interact in developing mastery of English. To address this concern, a study was conducted to investigate the perceptions of ESL learners with respect to input and interaction in second-language acquisition. This study contributes to the understanding of how ESL learners perceive the input that they receive, both in formal and informal settings and the nature of the interaction they engage in to acquire English as a second language.
