    Possible signs that you aren't correcting enough student errors:

    * 1. Students complain about the lack of error correction
    * 2. Students don't see the value of speaking activities or just see them as games
    * 3. Students say accuracy is their main priority but you haven't adjusted the way you teach to take that into account
    * 4. Student accuracy is not improving
    * 5. Students' fluency or use of more complex language is improving much quicker than their accuracy
    * 6. Accuracy is what is holding students back from reaching the next level or getting a higher score in an EFL exam
    * 7. Students have particular difficulty with error correction tasks in the textbook, workbook, progress tests or EFL exams
    * 8. Students keep on making the same mistakes and you have never tried correcting those ones
    * 9. Students make many false friend errors
    * 10. You never correct a piece of grammar that you haven't studied in class yet, even when students try to use it all the time
    * 11. You usually skip the error correction stage that is suggested in the teachers' book
    * 12. You usually correct errors when students are speaking but rarely use them in an error correction stage
    * 13. You always assume an error will disappear naturally
    * 14. You have never tried error correction games such as a Grammar Auction
    * 15. Students who need more accuracy such as someone giving an important business presentation or writing a job application cover letter do not get more correction than usual classes
    * 16. You correct well under 5% of all student errors
    * 17. You correct under an average of 5 errors per class
    * 18. You have never used an error correction code
    * 19. You are standing around doing nothing instead of noting down student errors during pairwork and groupwork
    * 20. You have been leaving a persistent error uncorrected without a conscious decision to monitor whether it naturally disappears or to tackle it another way.
    * 21. You don't correct errors but have no alternative ideas on how to improve your students' accuracy
