Give feedback on spoken language(2)

In this clip, the teacher corrects the pronunciation of the learner by repeating what the learner said, using the correct pronunciation: Spartacists. This type of feedback is called a recast and is comparatively implicit – the teacher does not actually say that the pupil has said something that is incorrect. She also explains the meaning and use of the word by linking it to a word the learners already know. This will help learners to store the word and re-create it the next time they need it.

This clip was filmed at the Isendoorn College in Warnsveld. The learners are third year pupils (average age 14-15), the subject is History and the teacher is Yvonne Boelman.
