It is a piece of information given to the learners to improve their language and revise it in future (Ali Derakhshan, May 2011). Corrective feedback defines the reaction of a teacher to correct the wrong utterance of language. It could be positive or negative feedback. There are different types of corrective feedbacks which are referred by different professionals (Mohammadi, 2009).
b) Introducing types of corrective feedback
There are different types of corrective feedback which are being used for EFL learners’ efficiency (Types of corrective feedback).
Explicit Correction: Here, the professor will clearly indicate the mistake of students’ utterance and provide feedback with corrective form (R.Ferris, 2001) (
Recasts: As it is difficult to learn and write the second language, the professor will not explicitly tell the mistake, rather they correct students by actually reformulating the sentence in an indirect way (Ellis).
Clarification request: The professor will give a sign for repeating the sentence in correct form by using paraphrase like Excuse Me!!? Or Come Again or I don’t

Such as, is it The USA instead a USA, Right? They will add the correct form in their question hence student will get a clue for correction. The Student will just have to say either Yes or No (Krashen, 1981).
Elicitation: It is similar to Metalinguistic clues where the professor will correct the student in the form of asking a question but here, the student requires responding more than Yes/No. A Student must have the knowledge to complete the sentence. It is like fill in the blanks.
Repetition: Here professor repeats the wrong utterance of a student just to get his attention, then gives a feedback.
c) Highlighting the main concern of the paper
The research says that that are six forms of corrective feedback used while giving feedback to EFL learners. The aim of this paper is to evaluate the two different techniques of corrective feedback: Recasts and Metalinguistic feedback; till what extent does the recasts and Metalinguistic feedback improve a child in learning the second language. The paper will explore and compare both of the feedback corrective techniques. Additionally, it would evaluate which of the technique is more influencing to the EFL learners Program (Lyster,
