I'm having trouble wrapping my head around cognitive, psycholinguistic, and behaviorist learning acquisition methods in the context of second language acquisition. I don't really understand their differences or how to identify which one is being used. From what I understand,
Cognitive: Sequencing grammatical forms in a syllabus for individualized learning. There is some innate learning mechanism that facilitates learning, so it is better for teachers to focus on "inputs"
(Shoebottom, P. (n.d.). An introduction to the work of Stephen Krashen. Retrieved January 19, 2018, from http://esl.fis.edu/teachers/support/krashen.htm)
Psycholinguistic: Links between instruction and its effect upon learners are crucial. Instruction should promote form-meaning "mappings" (providing a format to draw the learner's attention to the target form-meaning mappings)
(Psycholinguistics. (2018, January 16). Retrieved January 19, 2018, from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Psycholinguistics)
Behavioral: Learning occurs through repeated process with assessment of successful learning.

If, for example, I gave an assignment to students that asked to convert french words to english.
E.g. La piscine -> ?
Would this be a psycholinguistic approach? If I increase the number of questions and frequency, would this not be a behaviorist approach? Can anybody clarify the differences and give examples.
