It is also claimed by Lado that the results of CA provide ideal criteria for selecting testing items for an opposite view, see Upshur Skip to main content. How to Teach a Foreign Language. The results indicate that 54 participants have encountered difficulties at the level speaking, and 44 found writing skill difficult to develop, and the difficulties at the level of listening were encountered by 33 of the participants, and lastly, 13 goes to the reading skill. Third, to obtain information on common difficulties in Language Learning, as an aid to teaching or in the preparation of correr teaching materials.

In other words, errors are thought of as indications of an incomplete learning, and that the speaker or hearer has not yet accumulated a satisfied language knowledge which can enable them to avoid linguistics misuse.

Relating knowledge with competence was significant enough to represent that the competence of the speaker is judged by means of errors that concern the amount of linguistic data he or she has been exposed to, however, performance which is the actual use of language does not represent the language knowledge that the speaker has.

According to J. Thus, it is quite obvious that there is some kind of interrelationship between competence and performance; somehow, a speaker can perform well if he or she has had already satisfied linguistic knowledge. Fang and J. Xue-mei pointed out that contrastive analysis hypothesis claimed that the principal barrier to second language acquisition is the interference of the first language system with the second language system and that a scientific, structural comparison of the two languages in question would enable people to predict and describe which are problems and which are not.

Error analysis approach overwhelmed and announced the decline of the Contrastive Analysis which was only effective in phonology; and, according to J. Richard et al. In addition, Hashim, A. The aim of EA according to J. Error analysis in SLA was established in the s by Corder and colleagues.

Error analysis showed that contrastive analysis was unable to predict a great majority of errors, although its more valuable aspects have been incorporated into the study of language transfer.

A key finding of error analysis has been that many learner errors are produced by learners making faulty inferences about the rules of the new language. Error analysts distinguish between errors, which are systematic, and mistakes, which are not. They often seek to develop a typology of errors. Error can be classified according to basic type: omissive, additive, substitutive or related to word order.

They can be classified by how apparent they are: overt errors such as "I angry" are obvious even out of context, whereas covert errors are evident only in context. Closely related to this is the classification according to domain, the breadth of context which the analyst must examine, and extent, the breadth of the utterance which must be changed in order to fix the error.

Errors may also be classified according to the level of language: phonological errors, vocabulary or lexical errors, syntactic errors, and so on. They may be assessed according to the degree to which they interfere with communication : global errors make an utterance difficult to understand, while local errors do not.

In the above example, "I angry" would be a local error, since the meaning is apparent. From the beginning, error analysis was beset with methodological problems. In particular, the above typologies are problematic: from linguistic data alone, it is often impossible to reliably determine what kind of error a learner is making.

Also, error analysis can deal effectively only with learner production speaking and writing and not with learner reception listening and reading. Furthermore, it cannot account for learner use of communicative strategies such as avoidance , in which learners simply do not use a form with which they are uncomfortable. For these reasons, although error analysis is still used to investigate specific questions in SLA, the quest for an overarching theory of learner errors has largely been abandoned.

In the mids, Corder and others moved on to a more wide-ranging approach to learner language, known as interlanguage. Error analysis is closely related to the study of error treatment in language teaching.

Today, the study of errors is particularly relevant for focus on form teaching methodology. In second language acquisition , error analysis studies the types and causes of language errors. Errors are classified [2] according to: modality i. According to Dulay et al. Errors have been classified by J. Interlingual error is caused by the interference of the native language L1 also known as interference, linguistic interference, and crosslinguistic influence , whereby the learner tends to use their linguistic knowledge of L1 on some Linguistic features in the target language, however, it often leads to making errors.

The example, provided by J. Intralingual error is an error that takes place due to a particular misuse of a particular rule of the target language, it is, in fact, quite the opposite of Interlingual error, it puts the target language into focus, the target language in this perspective is thought of as an error cause.

Furthermore, J. Richard, et al. This kind of errors is committed through both of Omission and addition of some linguistic elements at the level of either the Spelling or grammar. Addition: Students are do their researches every semester. Both the boys and the girls they can study together.

Developmental errors: this kind of errors is somehow part of the overgeneralizations, this later is subtitled into Natural and developmental learning stage errors , D. E indicates that the learner has started developing their linguistic knowledge and fail to reproduce the rules they have lately been exposed to in target language learning.

Induced errors: as known as transfer of training, errors caused by misleading teaching examples, teachers, sometimes, unconditionally, explain a rule without highlighting the exceptions or the intended message they would want to convey. Errors of avoidance: these errors occur when the learner fail to apply certain target language rules just because they are thought of to be too difficult. Errors of overproduction: in the early stages of language learning, learners are supposed to have not yet acquired and accumulated a satisfied linguistic knowledge which can enable them to use the finite rules of the target language in order to produce infinite structures, most of the time, beginners overproduce, in such a way, they frequently repeat a particular structure.

Consequently, teachers should interlanguagd teach their students how to properly correct their errors and mistakes, and, in the meanwhile, building up trust between the students. However, the attempts made to put the error into context have always gone hand in hand with either Language Learning and Second Language acquisition processes, Hendrickson In second language acquisitionerror analysis studies the types and causes of language errors. They may be assessed according to the degree to which they interfere with communication: These results anaoysis only show that students trust more their teacher than both of their classmates and themselves, and since inferlanguage Self-correction is considered to be the most effective one as we have mentioned in our theoretical part.
