Students from all around the world tend to face problems when learning a second language. One of their most common problems is Negative Transfer, a phenomenon that is present in every Language classroom. Rule generalization and the use of false cognates are examples of the presence of Negative transference in the students’ learning process. Therefore, it is important for the ESL teacher to detect this phenomenon in order to help the students in its avoidance.This is why I would like to conduct a research on Negative Transfer in the ESL classroom.
How can we as teachers avoid those kind of problems with students? How can students avoid them?
what should a student do in order to face this problem?
