Unit 32: Correcting learners

28 Jun

We correct learners sometimes when they have made a mistake and we want to show them that something is wrong. There is a range of correction strategies and techniques we can use to indicate (show) that there is a mistake, and the ones we choose depend on a number of different factors, for example the aim of the activity, the age of the learners and the language level of the learners.

Keep on mid that over-correction can result in learners not wanting to say anything in class because they are afraid of making mistakes.

Let’s see some strategies and techniques to correct learners’ mistakes in class.

In the exercise below you will find the next vocabulary:
