Khan, Özlem; Can Daskin, Nilüfer – Novitas-ROYAL (Research on Youth and Language), 2014

Fagan, Drew S. – Novitas-ROYAL (Research on Youth and Language), 2014
That oral teacher feedback influences learning opportunities in classroom settings is found across language learning research, though there remains a lack of empirical evidence concerning how "and" why teachers construct their feedback turns "in situ." The current paper begins to address this by uncovering how one English as a…

Extending earlier research on the concept of Willingness to Communicate (WTC) (e.g., MacIntyre et al., 1998), this paper tests the WTC concept on a secondary school in Singapore where English is used as a lingua franca.
