Recent research in SLA has indicated that grammar teaching has an important role both in foreign and second language learning. However, it should be noted that this revival should not mean a return to traditional approach to grammar instruction which is focus on forms, but a new one, focus on form. The extent to which type of focus on form -incidental or planned- contributes more to L2 acquisition and learning is under debate. This study aims to examine both incidental and planned focus on form by reviewing six studies. This review study puts forth that both incidental and planned focused on form instruction may yield positive results in language learning process depending on some factors such as language focus, learner type, language learning expectation, task types, language skills. Keywords: Focus on form, planned focus on form, incidental focus on form
