THE NATURAL APPROACH
A language learning approach developed by Tracy Terrell and Stephen Krashen, starting in 1977. It is based on the following tenets:

1. Language acquisition (an unconscious process developed through using language meaningfully) is different from language learning (consciously learning or discovering rules about a language) and language acquisition is the only way competence (the tacit knowledge that underlies the language performance of a speaker of a language) in a second language occurs. (The acquisition/learning hypothesis)
2. Conscious learning operates only as a monitor or editor that checks or repairs the output of what has been acquired. (The monitor hypothesis)
3. Grammatical structures are acquired in a predictable order and it does little good to try to learn them in another order.(The natural order hypothesis).
4. People acquire language best from messages that are just slightly beyond their current competence. (The input hypothesis)
5. The learner's emotional state can act as a filter that impedes or blocks input necessary to acquisition. (The affective filter hypothesis)

It is important to note that competence is used here in the technical sense that it has in linguistics - the tacit knowledge that underlies the language performance of a speaker of a language.

I updated it - does it look ok now?

I still think that "Polish" should be removed from the description of SuperMemo because the software doesn't teach Polish, nor is it in the Polish language, and the definition doesn't make that clear. If you insist on keeping it, I'd reword it as "Flash card software using spaced repetition from Poland", or something similar, to avoid confusing the country and the language.

I think we should add the term "SRS", as that term is seeing some popularity:

SRS
Abbreviation: Spaced Repetition System. Any flash card program that uses spaced repetition (e.g., Anki, Mnemosyne, SuperMemo, jMemorize.)

And we still need to amend SuperMemo's entry to avoid confusing Poland with the Polish language. That problem has been there for a year now. I still recommend removing any reference to Poland because where the software is from is entirely irrelevant.

How about adding a definition for immersion? I get the impression that there are varying ideas of how long immersion experiences should be, how much if any non-target language communication is allowed, whether there should be a certain amount of classroom work or certain amount of interaction with target language speakers, etc.

How about a definition for L-R? I keep seeing it around but haven't figured out what people mean by it (I think it means Listening-Reading? But what's the process? What do people do?).
