Abstract
This study focuses on the interference between the theories of second language acquisition by the native speakers (such as: Behaviorist's theory, Nativist's theory, Interactionist's theory, Information Processing theory, Vygotsky's theory, Halliday's theory, Sociolinguistic's theory) and the viewpoints of the non-native speakers (e.g. Vietnamese) who study a native language (e.g. English) as a second language or foreign language. Moreover, based on the summary table of the second language acquisition theories, the viewpoints of non-native speakers are analyzed to find out which theories adapt the viewpoints of the learners, being really the ones who acquire second languages. Last but not least, the effects of learning process and of learners on second language acquisition are explored for illustration.
