Corrective feedback (CF) is seen as an inseparable part of second language learning and can generally be divided into written or oral CF. This paper focuses on investigating one type of oral CF which is prompting. This study examines types of prompts used by instructors and how students react to different types of prompting within a context of assessing students’ speaking skills. A qualitative case study design involving 15 thirteen-year-old students and three English language instructors was conducted. Students were given an oral picture-description task and prompted by the instructors during each of the oral sessions. All 15 oral sessions were videotaped and transcribed verbatim. Thematic analysis was used to categorize students’ responses towards each type of prompt. The findings suggest that the use of clarification requests (implicit CF) are useful in triggering more ideas and facilitating students’ fluency in delivering ideas, compared to elicitation (explicit CF).
