The Focus on Form Debate: Another Explanation for Grim's Results/Response to "The Focus on Form Debate: Another Explanation for Grim's Results"

VIEWS: 10 PAGES: 3

Grim (2008) reported that planned focus on form was more effective in the short run than incidental and no focus on form for French as a foreign language at the university level, but differences among the groups were not significant ten days later.1 The author interprets this result as supportive of planned focus on form, suggesting that the disappointing results on the delayed posttest were because of the short duration of the treatment. In a true classroom context, most textbooks provide longer exposure of grammatical and lexical form within each chapter and throughout the textbook, which gives more opportunities for retention and acquisition.
