Teacher’s Perception and Practice of Oral Corrective Feedback: A Case Study of an American English Teacher in an Online Chinese EFL (English as a foreign language) Classroom
Corrective feedback (CF) is often considered as an effective way to improve L2 (second language) learners’ writing and oral linguistic accuracy. Many studies focus on the effectiveness of written CF but few on oral CF. Therefore, the main objective of this study is to investigate oral CF from a teacher’s perspective. More specifically, this study, using qualitative methods, will explore how a native-English-speaking teacher thinks of and implements oral CF in an online Chinese EFL classroom. The findings of this study can provide several pedagogical implications for the teacher’sappropriate use of oral CF in EFL classroom.
