Mirzaee, Milad; Yaqubi, Baqer – Iranian Journal of Language Teaching Research, 2016
One of the recent issues in English as a Second/Foreign Language (ESL/EFL) writing instruction has been the quest for a more effective way to give feedback to L2 learners' writing drafts.

Lotfipour-Saedi, Kazem – Iranian Journal of Language Teaching Research, 2015

Textual difficulty/comprehensibility, rather than being purely text-based or reader-dependent, is certainly a matter of interaction between text and…
