The Effect of Metalinguistic Feedback and Recasts on Learners’ Uptake and Subsequent Production of Past Simple

This study aimed to investigate the effect of metalinguistic feedback and recasts on learners' uptake and subsequent production of past simple while engaging in controlled oral tasks. Firstly, related articles on corrective feedback on oral errors are reviewed and the effects of the two feedback types on learners' accuracy of past simple are discussed. A small scale laboratory experiment was carried out to examine learners' uptake as responses to metalinguistic feedback and recasts provided by the teacher to direct their attentions to the wrong forms in their utterances. The data on teacher- student interactions during the controlled speaking task were recorded, transcribed and coded for analysis purposes. Further investigation on learners' awareness of corrections received from the teacher was conducted using stimulated recall technique. Finally, a brief conclusion and pedagogical implications are drawn from the findings.
