Results revealed that students’ views and teachers’ practices conformed to each other in <em>cognition of committing verbal errors</em>, and in <em>whether to correct;</em> that they were mostly incongruent with each other in <em>what to correct; </em>that they were congruent with each other in <em>peer correction</em>, but not in <em>teachers’ correction</em> or <em>self-correction; </em>that they coincided with each other in <em>indirect </em>correction, but not in<em> direct</em> one, nor in <em>immediate </em>correction or the <em>maximum correction frequency</em> in one class; and that CF mainly generated <em>positive psychological effects and better learning </em>on students, but its pedagogical efficacy was not evidently approved by the teachers. This research aimed at gaining a deeper insight into the effectiveness of CF in TCSOL to improve the quality of TCSOL.</p> 2021-01-06T00:00:00+08:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement##
