What's Wrong with Oral Grammar Correction.
Turscott, John
Canadian Modern Language Review, v55 n4 p437-56 Jun 1999
Argues that oral grammar correction in second-language classrooms produces overwhelming problems both in making corrections and dealing with their harmful side effects, and that the practice should be discontinued. Research evidence suggests that oral correction does not improve learners' ability to speak grammatically, and no good reasons have been advanced for maintaining the practice. (Author/MSE)
