The Organization of Delayed Second Language Correction
Rolin-Ianziti, Jeanne
Language Teaching Research, v14 n2 p183-206 Apr 2010
The present study uses a conversation analytic framework to examine the organization of a type of classroom talk: the delayed correction sequence. Such talk occurs when teacher and students interactively correct errors after the students have completed a communicative activity. This study investigates naturally occurring instances of correction accomplished by four teachers of introductory French and their students and uncovers two main approaches to delayed correction: (1) teacher-initiated correction, and (2) teacher-initiated student-correction. The detailed examination of delayed correction examples may be fruitful to training purposes by showing teachers the options they may enact in the language classroom. (Contains 5 tables.)
