Even a brief inspection of commonly used methodology textbooks or popular course books and grammar practice books reveals that grammar instruction is usually equated with engaging learners in production-based practice. Various types of grammar practice activities provide ample opportunities to produce the target feature and the accuracy criterion ranks high on the priority list. In most language classrooms, output-oriented practice is complemented with explicit rule presentation, thus being part of the commonly applied PPP (present—practice—produce) procedure.
