Abstract:The results of the qualitative analysis revealed that despite instructions, teachers had often a tendency to follow their natural teaching style. Furthermore, the use of English was used among teachers when providing direct and delayed translations, and feedback to their students. In terms of the quantitative analysis, the results showed that the planned focus-on-form group performed better on components such as vocabulary and grammar. The findings are discussed in terms of the implications for L2 teachers, teacher educators, second language theory, and pedagogical applications for CEI and focus-on-form.
