Ninety-seven (53 male and 44 female) university learners of Chinese from 33 countries participated in the survey. The statistical results indicated that there were little significant differences in male and female learners’ beliefs in CF in LCFL except in two psychological effects in which male learners seemed more emotional or grateful to teachers’ correction; that culture did not influence male and female learners’ beliefs in CF; that <em>s</em><em>elf-correction</em> and <em>teachers’ correction </em>are more welcomed than <em>peers</em>’; that <em>immediate</em> <em>correction </em>in specific contexts was preferred; that teachers were supposed to <em>tell the learners where the mistake was before correcting it</em>; that it was not confirmed whether <em>direct</em> or <em>indirect</em> <em>correction</em> was better; that learners’ preference of frequency of CF was between <em>sometimes</em> or <em>often</em>; and that <em>negative </em>effects of CF were not found. These findings may contribute to the Chinese teachers’ understanding of learners as individuals and to correction methods teachers adopt while confronting learners’ errors in teaching Chinese as a foreign language (TCFL) classes.</p> 2020-11-14T00:00:00+08:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement##
