This paper presents an error analysis on classroom discourse of non-native Korean language teachers by focusing on their ‘teacher talk’. The purpose of this study is to analyse linguistic errors in the discourse of non-native trainees who finished a Korean language teacher training program and to present useful data for non-native Korean teacher education. Ten Korean classes were videotaped, transcribed and analysed. The results show that there are verbal errors such as pronunciation, grammar, vocabulary & expression and pragmatic errors, and non-verbal problems such as kinesics and paralanguage in their classroom discourse. Among the total 498 verbal errors, pronunciation errors(397, 79.7%) appeared the most frequently, and grammatic errors(79, 15.9%), vocabulary & expression errors(11, 2.2%) and pragmatic errors(11, 2.2%) appeared with subsequent frequency. As for non-verbal aspects, problems in gesture, facial expression, posture, and oculesics were observed in two teachers' behaviors, and intonation problems were observed in most of the teachers' discourse. According to the results of the research, their linguistic problems could cause such negative influences on the classroom interaction process as: 1) inaccurate input, 2) inappropriate feedback, and 3) communication breakdowns in teacher-student interactions.
