Abstract:
This study is part of a larger study on feedback and it was aimed at discovering the most prevalent errors Iranian EFL learners have in their writing task two for IELTS. To this end, 60 writing responses for each of different proficiency levels were studied to find out about the error gravity. The participants were at three different proficiency levels according to the IELTS bands namely, band 5, 6 and 7. The results suggested that syntactic errors were more common than lexical and mechanical ones among all the three different proficiency levels. Analysis of Chi-square was used to find significant difference among the groups. However, the differences were not significant. Finally, the Some pedagogical implications are finally drawn from this study.
