The purposes of the study were to investigate the types of feedback mostly used by teachers, to investigate the effects of teachers feedback on young EFL learner uptake and repair, and as for the pedagogical purpose, the study would be giving a new perspective of the good or positive feedback that teachers should give when teaching children.

This research used observational design. The approach used in this research was the qualitative one supported by simple statistic calculation (frequency) in order to support the findings, whereas the analysis model used was the inductive type which started from the data or facts obtained in the field for abstraction and drawing the conclusion. The result of the research showed that teacher used eight different types of feedback: repetition, form-related comment, elicitation, recasts, explicit correction, clarification request, praise, and clue. The most dominant feedback type used by teacher was repetition. It comprised 25% of feedback moves.
