... as " a valid pedagogical tool" (Qi Lapkin, 2001, p 295).Regan, B.O. Mompean, A.R. Desmet, P. (2010). From spell, grammar and style checkers to writing aids for English and French as a foreign language Challenges and opportunities. Revue Francaise de Linguistique Appliquee, XV, 67-84. In this study the authors investigate the effectiveness of grammar checkers in providing an accurate writing for both native and non native speakers of French and English. The study is designed through giving non native speakers to write corpus in grammar checkers and exploring how much mistakes in grammar and spelling will be fixed by these tools. The findings showed that French grammar checkers have performed better than English checker in capturing errors, correcting them and giving a useful feedback. While English checker was very weak in correction and feedback. This study will be used to illustrate that from a pedagogical point of view grammar checkers as a learning strategy can be harmful tools for L2 learners writing more than helpful.Robb, T. Ross, S. (1986). Salience of feedback on Error and its effect on EFL writing Quality. TESOL Quarterly, 20 (1), 83-95.This study examines the hypothesis that students' writing will be developed if more "salient error-feedback" have been given to the learners. This study has been designed in EFL contexts. The participants have been divided into four groups which received direct and indirect feedback. The findings showed that the theory that indicates as much error feedback the learners have received by teacher as accurate the writing will be is not true theory. I will use this resource as an account argument for the fact that teachers should not pay so much attention to students' surface mistakes in lexical, syntactic and stylistic errors.
