Abstract

The current study argues that learning occurs when there is Ex-implicit grammar teaching and student-student, student-teacher and teacher-student interaction. Following Form-Focused-Instruction (FFI) and the implementation of Sociocultural Theory (SCT) in pedagogical settings form the role of the instructor who seeks to improve the Second/Foreign Language Learners’ written accuracy. An empirical study which lasted four months was conducted on 74 Arab Learners of English (ALEs) forming two groups of 37 each. A detailed analysis was made of the target-like and the non-target-like forms of the simple past tense in 222 written texts produced by ALEs. Written texts were collected from each subject at three stages in the experiment (after two weeks, after two months and after four months). Quantitative and qualitative analyses show the positive impact of Form-Focused-Instruction (FFI) and the implementation of Sociocultural Theory (SCT) in pedagogical settings on Foreign Language Learners’ written accuracy following the Innovated Writing Process IWP.
