  • Studies in Second Language Acquisition
The extent to which form-focused instruction contributes to the acquisition of second language implicit knowledge is controversial. Whereas Krashen (1993) has argued that the effects of FFI on acquisition are peripheral, N. Ellis (this issue) sees FFI as facilitative and even necessary for developing implicit L2 knowledge. This article examines the role of FFI in developing implicit knowledge by reviewing 11 studies that have examined the effect of FFI on learners' free production. The review… 
Form-focused instruction and the development of second language proficiency
TLDR
This study has found that explicit instruction effectively promoted implicit knowledge of the simple morphological target structure, if the L2 had a similar structure and suggested that language learners do not see the parallelism between the two manifestations of the structure, and they seem to learn each manifestation independently.
Evaluating the Effectiveness of Explicit and Implicit Form-Focused Instruction on Explicit and Implicit Knowledge of EFL Learners
Although explicit and implicit knowledge of language learners are essential to theoretical and pedagogical debates in second language acquisition (SLA), little research has addressed the effects of
FORM-FOCUSED INSTRUCTION: EFFECTIVENESS OF CONSCIOUSNESS-RAISING TASKS AND DIRECT GRAMMAR INSTRUCTION IN EFL LEARNING
Research has already made a strong case for the undisputable role of grammar knowledge and grammar instruction in EFL teaching and learning. The ongoing debate now is when and how to utilize grammar

TLDR
The study indicated that explicit and implicit types of FFI were significantly more beneficial for explicitly-easy and implicitly-easy language forms respectively, as assessed by different implicit and explicit outcome measures.
HOW EXPLICIT KNOWLEDGE AFFECTS ONLINE L2 PROCESSING
TLDR
This study investigated how explicit knowledge of a structure that does not exist in the L1 affects the initial stage of adult L2 acquisition and showed that metalinguistic information promoted learners’ performance on the grammaticality judgment task.
Form‐Focused Instruction: Isolated or Integrated?
There is increasing consensus that form-focused instruction helps learners in communicative or content-based instruction to learn features of the target language that they may not acquire without
The Role of Explicit Instruction inthe L2 Acquisition of the a-personal
TLDR
This study seeks to answer this question, focusing on the instruction of one particularly problematic structure for native English-speaking L2 learners of Spanish, Differential Object Marking, or a-personal.
Explicit versus Implicit Grammar Instruction
In the acquisition of a second/foreign language, the role of focus-on-form has been asserted over the last two decades, it is still fundamental to figure out how second/foreign language students
THE EFFECTS AND THE EFFECTIVENESS OF INSTRUCTION ON L2 ACQUISITION
The present article is a review of both the theoretical and the empirical literature on the effects and effectiveness of instruction for second language acquisition. Following De Graaff and Housen
The Effect of Explicit Instruction through Combined Input-Output Tasks on the Acquisition of Indirect Reported Speech in English
Grammar is being rehabilitated (e.g., Doughty & Williams 1998a) and recognized for what it has always been (Thornbury, 1997, 1998, cited in Burgess & Etherington, 2002): an essential, inescapable

Does second language instruction promote second language acquisition? Some studies conclude that instruction does not help (or even that it is counter-productive); others find it beneficial. The
The Structural Syllabus and Second Language Acquisition
TLDR
It is argued that a structural syllabus cannot easily serve as a basis for developing implicit knowledge of a second language because of the learnability problem-learners are often unable to learn the structural properties they are teaching because the manner in which they are taught does not correspond to the way learners acquire them.
The Effect of Formal Grammar Teaching: Still Peripheral
In my view, the data from White et al. does not tell us whether direct instruction resulted in acquired or learned competence. To show that learned knowledge "becomes" acquired or underlying
Creating Structure-Based Communication Tasks for Second Language Development
TLDR
An approach to designing tasks which incorporates a cognitive perspective on SLA and language processing, insights from research on communicative task design from second language research, and methods of measuring language development from psycholinguistics and inter1anguage variation studies is argued.
The Role of Implicit Negative Feedback in SLA: Models and Recasts in Japanese and Spanish
The role of implicit and explicit negative feedback in first (L1) and second (L2) language acquisition is contentious. The L2 studies to date, however, suggest that implicit negative feedback exists,
