CORRECTIVE FEEDBACK IN EFL CLASSROOMS

Ahmad Syarif

Abstract


In learning a foreign language, students need to eliminate their errors one by one to attain better communicative language. It is the role of their teacher to correct their errors to help them master the language as well as to avoid fossilization of errors. There are a number of approaches to correcting errors such as recast and explicit feedback. In recast, a teacher implicitly restates an incorrect utterance correctly, while in explicit feedback, a teacher can either simply tells the learner that what he or she said was wrong, or offers meta-linguistic explanation as to what is wrong and why. Regarding explicit feedback, a study revealed a mixed result of the approach. Based on the study this article discusses how to bring corrective feedback in EFL classroom.
