Abstract: Errors are a major issue in teaching English as foreign language and it should be given attention to develop our learners’ achievement. Types of error correction are elicitation, clarification request, explicit correction, repetition, recast, and metalinguistic clues correction. This final type of correction is taken in this work to be studied. The metalinguistic clues correction was related to the grammatical errors. Grammatical errors were taken in specific because of its effect on delivering the correct meaning intended by the student or breaking the communication. The aim of this study is to test the effect of the metalinguistic clues correction on participants’ accuracy. The study examined the hypothesis which states that if metalinguistic clues correction of grammatical errors are used, students’ accuracy will develop. The method used to test this hypothesis is the experimental method. The chosen sample for this study was students of second year at Maajoudj El Amri secondary school. In this experiment two groups composed of twelve students were selected randomly. The treatment was applied on one group and the other remained control. Both groups were tested twice, before and after a teaching period of eight lessons. The results indicated that the metalinguistic clues correction was effective and it helped in developing students’ achievement twenty six percent. The control group’s achievement declined which indicated that the procedure of correction followed by the principle teacher was not effective. The results lead to recommend the use of the metalinguistic clues correction to correct grammatical errors
