This article proposes that different contexts occur in L2 classrooms and that repair is organised differently within each context. It is suggested that within each context a particular pedagogical focus combines with a particular organisation of repair which is appropriate to that focus. The organisation of repair within each context is sketched and is exemplified through the analysis of classroom transcripts.
