Inglés para Todos content is supported by the theses of two experts in language acquisition. Inglés para Todos presents students with real life messages which they want to hear, helping students learn quickly and effectively.

MIT linguist Noam Chomsky contends that all individuals have the innate ability to understand and use grammar. The human mind is hard programmed at birth to make sense of linguistic patterns. The mind instructively decodes language content.

Stephen Krashen of the University of Southern California, in agreement with Chomsky, proposes that language acquisition is enhanced when a student witnesses meaningful interaction in natural circumstances. Krashen states that instructive content should have concern for the message, not he grammatical form. Language instruction works best when employing “comprehensible input” in a “low anxiety” situation.
