Feedback in language teaching is the response from the teacher after any student performance using the language.
Negative feedback is used when students commit a mistake. Its purpose is to change behavior towards the correct direction.
Positive feedback is used when students use language correctly. Its purpose is to reinforce accurate and appropriate use of the language.
Give equal attention to well- performing students as much as low-performing ones.
Overdoing or underdoing feedback might result in students' distrust.
Always change feedback techniques so it doesn't seem automated.
Let mistakes happen and worry not to correct every single mistake or praise very single correct use.
Either it's for positive or negative feedback, always give simple reasons for each feedback.
It consists in a three-step sequence. First, the teacher (T) asks for the student's (S) self-assessment; second, T tells S the mistake that was commited; third, T asks S how he will improve to avoid the mistake next time.
The process has a similar structure as the previous one. First, T praises S by mentioning strengths; second, T mentions the mistake; third, T praises S's abilities to be better for next time.
Lets the student know their past performance, compares it with their present performance, and then establishes expectations of their future performance.
