III. THEORICAL BACKGROUND
Recent theory on language acquisition methodology supports the position that not all error should be corrected, and those that are corrected should usually not be “treated” immediately (Krashen 1987; 74-76, 116-119; doff 1988: 186-192; Lewis 1993: 164-179; Hunan Ana Lamb 1996: 246-249). This position is based on the fact that errors are normal and unavoidable during the learning process. Also, current theories of how we learn languages recognize that habit formation is only one part of the process.
Error occurs for many reasons. One obvious case is interference from the native language. A learner may make errors because he assumes that the target language and his native language are similar, when in fact they are different. Another obvious cause is simple incomplete knowledge of the target language. A third common cause of errors is the complexity of target language.
