Studies have been conducted on pre-service English teachers’ reflections on their microteaching. However, few of these studies have explored what pre-service teachers reflect on when they watch their own video-recorded microteaching and how watching it helps them become aware of strengths and weaknesses in their own teaching. This study aimed to investigate how and what pre-service primary English teachers reflect on after watching their own video-recorded microteaching and receiving feedback from peers. This study also investigated how they utilize peer pre-service teachers’ feedback to improve their English teaching. For the analysis, 39 pre-service teachers’ reflection journals were qualitatively analyzed and the instructor’s note and videorecorded microteaching were analyzed as needed. The results of the study are as follows: 1) video-recorded microteaching gave some pre-service teachers the potential to isolate and capture important and puzzling moments that can occur that they might miss during the microteaching; 2) watching a video recording of their microteaching after receiving peer feedback in class helped pre-service teachers identify areas for improvement and increased awareness of their strengths and weaknesses. This study suggests detailed guidelines or observation schemes should be developed and provided for pre-service teachers to reflect on their microteaching more efficiently.
