be. So, they overgeneralize the known rule of the auxiliary verb do/does when answering shortyes/no questions.*Scott Thornbury (1999) states that relaxing on accuracy simply acknowledges the fact that therules of grammar take a long time to establish themselves.The success depends on the kind of rule being explained. In this case, the teacher is a monitor of the learners’ degree of comprehension at every stage of the explanation, and respondingimmediately to any problems they might have. The grammar explanation is also very easy, inthat it involves few if any materials and requires little or no preparation. It is therefore probablyone of the most efficient ways of dealing with grammar problems that might arise in the courseof a lesson as a result, fro example of a student’s error.*Scott Thornbury, (1999),

The teacher should focus on form and provide activities that promote awareness of grammar.These activities need that the teacher corrects the errors during the class and not only during atest.As a consequence, the students confuse the auxiliary verbs among them because they onlymemorize rules, but the teacher does not provide the time for correct errors and practiceexercises during the class. The students only realized their errors after the test and they get amark, however they do not understand why their answers are wrong.One way of correctness is to write the correct version on the whiteboard. Say the sentence atalmost normal speed. Underline or otherwise highlight the relevant parts. Beside each sentenceinclude a drawing to aid memory and enjoyment. This allows further input. Drawings arealways fun and encourage participation. Chat and elicit vocabulary, spelling, etc. from studentswhile drawing. Elicit another example for the whiteboard from a student.
I had problems collecting data because the teacher promised to me to bring tests of the students, but he finally did not give it to me. So, due to I reinforce some of the students on Wednesdays Iapplied a handout, but a few of them came to the school that they. I think the main responsiblefor the students’ learning process is the teacher in this case, because if students confuse theauxiliary verbs is due to he does not like the students do grammar exercises during the class. Heexplains the same topic every week, but he does not check if the learners noticed their mistakes
