Now that the value of grammar instruction has been corroborated in a number of studies, there is a need to determine the ways in which it should most beneficially be conducted. In order to do this, however, it is necessary to undertake empirical investigations which would address such issues as the choice of linguistic features to be taught, the effectiveness of specific techniques and procedures, the timing, duration and intensity of instruction, as well as its place in the overall curriculum. Since such research needs to be context-specific to provide a basis for practicable pedagogic proposals, the present paper outlines the main research directions and discusses key methodological issues in the area of form-focused instruction with a view to encouraging Polish applied linguists to pursue this line of inquiry.
