Abstract:   (815 Views)
The essence of Complex, Dynamic Systems Theory is that there is no stasis, only change. The processes of change are the consequences of interactions of variables over time. At least forty theories of SLA have been proposed, but it seems none of them gives a complete explanation of this complex process. The purpose of the study to recognize CDS features, controlling parameters, and SLA theories to support the idea that SLA is complex and dynamic process. Considering the proposed theories in SLA, features of complex systems and controlling parameters in SLA, the researcher has proposed a model based on CDST approach to explain the complexity involved in learning a second language. The method was narrative review research. Results will be advantageous for methodologies, theoreticians, syllabus designers and teachers, to involve social, cultural, factors in SLA processes. It will be also helpful to solve some of the long-lasting problems and present the fascinating, promising approach of CDST.
