New Era of Language Learning 
The two general learning streams in psychology, namely behaviorism 
and cogntivism, have so far provided the agenda for the education 
system. With the tremendous and multi-faceted changes and demands of 
the new millenium, it is a propitious time to infuse fresh inspirations 
into the education  in general and second/foreign language education 
in particular. Thus, this article reconsiders behaviorism and 
cognitivism on philosophical and theoretical grounds, attempting to 
show that the two theories are not removed from each other. This 
fact justifies the introduction of a new learning theory, i.e., 
constructivism in the area of second/foreign language learning.
