How to correct students in the classroom?

How to correct students in the classroom?

When teachers create an activity they have to be sure about the right moment to use it because sometimes students will make some mistakes. But the way teachers should correct their students is a serious decision.
Some might say that teachers should correct students in the exactly moment they make mistakes in order to make them understand the point they have to improve. On the other hand, to stop pupils in front of the class all the time may be a bit frustrating. Moreover, when students say something wrong when they are given a communicative activity they might feel uncomfortable if the teacher keep saying that it is not right, or they should say something in that way, not this way, and so on.
Research has shown that some students may enjoy the task they are given when the teacher is involved. This may be a good way for them to have feedback from the educator right away. Group work or pair work are kinds of activities that may help students feel confident in order to practice the language. Furthermore, when students work in group they learn not only by cooperating but also by helping each other.
In summary, teaching is a process where – in some moments – teacher will need to correct students. One of the best ways of doing this correction is by using group work. It is said that when pupils study together they teach each other. Therefore, group work allows students to practice the language and may provide them with opportunity for correctness and feedback in order to make them perform activities using the language.
