The Effect of Immediate Correction of EFL Learners’ Mispronunciation in Enhancing Classroom Discussion

Amir Abdalla Minalla

Abstract


The studies that viewed in this study showed that breaking students’ communication has a negative effect on their interaction. Although, the tremendous efforts that have been exerted in order not to break the flow of EFL learners’ verbal communication, EFL teachers are forced to do it i.e. necessity of immediate correction of some errors. This study is to examine whether immediate correction of mispronounced key utterances of interlocutors could enhance a classroom discussion. Analysis of collected data revealed that Group1’s participants who dealt with the conversation in which its interlocutors were immediately corrected in their mispronouncing key utterances significantly outperformed Group2’s participants who dealt with the conversation in which its interlocutors were corrected with some delayed i.e. after finishing their speech. Hence, immediate correction of mispronounced key utterances positively enhances classroom discussion more than delayed correction.
