Abstract
The Output Hypothesis has been examined broadly in terms of its role in second language acquisition since it was first proposed by Swain. This paper introduces the Output Hypothesis with regard to its basic claims, related research both from home and abroad. Literature will be reviewed from two main dimensions: theoretical discussions and research on teaching practice. This paper will also put forward some implications of the Output Hypothesis for language teaching, with the purpose of contributing to further studies and language teaching practice.
