Abstract

Knowing students’ attitudes towards a new language can be very useful for language teachers. If the techniques used to correct errors do not meet students’ preferences, subsequent negative attitudes may emerge. This is why teachers should take into consideration students’ preferences for being corrected. Many studies centre on the effect of feedback on students’ writing, but they omit learners’ attitudes and preferences towards corrective feedback (Katayama, 2007). In education, corrective feedback is viewed as crucial for motivating learners and helping their learning. A growing body of research on corrective feedback in ESL points to its importance for the process of language acquisition. The responses show that ESL learners generally have a positive attitude towards error correction.

Keywords: corrective feedback, error correction, attitudes, ESL.
