Abstract

This study employed a quasi-experimental single-group pretest- posttest design and examined the effect of consciousness-raising (C-R) activities on English personal pronoun usage to show accurate pronoun-antecedent agreement and the perceptions of C-R activities on personal pronouns and learning target grammar. The findings showed that posttest scores vis-à-vis pretest scores significantly improved. Additionally, the students' perceptions about the effect of C-R activities were generally optimistic and they saw the activities as a credible way to learn and acquire target grammar. A significant relationship was also found between the students' positive perceptions about C-R activities and the difference in test performances.
