THE PERSPECTIVE OF FL TEACHERS ON NATIVE LANGUAGE INTERFERENCE IN FL CLASSROOM
Ema Fričeková, University of Presov, Slovakia
Language interference arising from the native language negative transfer is understood as one of the sources of errors students make in the process of foreign language learning. Whether in oral or written performance, negative transfer errors represent an issue that teachers are coming across every day no matter which language is taken into consideration. The following qualitative study intents to observe the situation in foreign language classrooms concerning the presence of the errors that have their origin in the native language from the view of teachers. In this way, the aim is to understand how these errors are treated and prevented during lessons as well as to learn more about teachers’ experience with them. For this to find out, foreign language teachers have been interviewed.
