Abstract:For task-based interaction, the results revealed a main effect of language focus and an interaction effect involving instructions and language focus. That is, the learners focused more on lexis than morphosyntax irrespective of planning and instruction types, but the difference between lexis and morphosyntax focus was reduced for the specific compared to the general instructions. However, there were no main effects of instructions and planning, as well as no interaction between planning and instructions, planning and language focus, or planning, instructions, and language focus. In terms of what the learners did while planning, the overall results indicated that both general and specific planners paid the greatest attention to content and organization, followed by lexis and grammar, which suggests that the pretask instructions did not affect what learners did during planning time.
