When is a Mistake a Mistake, and When is it a Learning Opportunity?
We all make mistakes - it’s inevitable. Errors are a natural and expected part of language learning. How much do you correct your learners? Do you do it enough? Too much? It can be hard to know which errors should be corrected, when to correct them, who should correct them or how they should be corrected. This session aims at answering these questions while providing different strategies to adopt in your lessons. The way you handle error correction can determine whether a mistake becomes a learning opportunity or whether it hinders learning.
