CA Repair in Classroom English Teaching

in Its Real Sense 

Wenfang Fan

Tsinghua University

CA repair (Schegloff et al, 1977) is a powerful tool for analyzing conversations. Many researchers have tried to apply CA repair in analyzing foreign language classroom conversations (Kaper, 1985; McHoul, 1990; Koshik, 2002; Liebscher, et al, 2003; Hall, 2007; Quan et al, 2015), but not much research has hit the right point, "...problems of repair are very different kinds of problems than people who wanted to work in that area may have had in mind to work on." (Wong et al, 2000). The current research aims to do research on repair in classromm English teaching in its real sense.   

CA repair involves understanding and correcting which are central to a foreign language teaching, "Findings from such research will surely contribute to a more robust understanding of the enterprise of classroom-based language learning.” (Hall, 2007) The findings will also contribute to the general theory of CA repair.

The data came from video transcriptions of six FLT classes at tertiary level. The transcribed data are analyzed quantitatively in order to work out the configurations of the repair patterns and the general tendency in the English classroom interaction. Qualitative analysis is done to find out major differences between repair configurations in EFL classroom interaction and daily conversation, and how they are relevant to teaching pedagogy.   

Key words: classroom English teaching; CA repair
