    Abstract

    We conducted a multisite replication of Yang and Lyster (2010), a study investigating the effects of recasts and prompts on learning English regular and irregular past tense. Our study was conducted with intact high school and vocational school classes, in Italy and Bosnia. Our participants were young adolescents (14-15 and 16-17 years old), a population that has been largely ignored in SLA research. We followed the design of the original study, but we also included a few modifications regarding the elicitation materials. The findings from our study did not totally align with the Yang and Lyster results. We found no effect for group and no evidence of the superiority of either feedback type in either the written or oral data, in either of the two sites. However, we found a steady increase in scores over time from pretest to post-tests in oral data in all groups at both sites.
