Rana Kazemi, Seyed Mahdi Araghi


One of these common problems is the students' and teachers' disagreement on the amount of error correction, type, and techniques of correcting errors. This study based on the findings of a questionnaire administrated to 60 male and female EFL students in Pardisan Language Institute investigates learners’ preferences toward classroom oral error correction, learners’ preferences for correction of different types of oral errors and learners’ preferences for particular correction techniques. The results obtained, manifest that almost all of the female students preferred to have their grammatical and vocabulary errors always corrected over the other error types. Whereas the majority of male students preferred to have their vocabulary, phonology, and pragmatically errors which always be corrected in order of frequency and percentages. Students strongly showed positive preference toward correction of this type (grammar & vocabulary).
