Abstract: Language learners aim to achieve a level of proficiency and ability to function in the second language at a native-like level. To put it in another way, learners need to demonstrate both accuracy and fluency to become proficient. Equal attention to form and meaning in language learning provides clear advantages for learners to improve their language performance. The incorporation of form and meaning allows learners to perceive formal structures in context and also encourage them to engage in meaningful use of language. The exposure to meaningful contexts helps language learners with the development of accuracy and fluency. This article attempts to demonstrate the benefits of combining form and meaning to increase proficiency in second language learning.
