London: Macmillan Heinemann. Strengthen Your Decision Making Studies show that decisions made in your second language are more reason-driven than those made in your native language.
Finally, expand opportunities for language and cultural immersion through study abroad, which contributes dramatically not only to gains in L2 proficiency but also to the kinds of intercultural skills that are now widely recognized as essential for success in the global labor force.
The Canadian Modern Language Review, 57 3 L1 to Establish Rapport A number of data showed that teachers use L1, or they believe it is necessary to speak in Spanish, in order to establish a connection with students at the outset. For the rising four billion-member middle class around the world, knowing English is synonymous with having a future beyond one's home village or town, of getting ahead in the world.
Research Questions The research questions used in this project were the following: What are the reasons why teachers and students use or do not use L1? I2 The teachers are not clear about an indication of a written document or an authority that has made such a statement concerning the use of Spanish, but it is clearly a dominant discourse of the school.
In the third excerpt the student makes a simple correlation between the use of L2 and learning L2: both go together. I2 These two excerpts indicate that the teachers are aware of the language level of their students and they have assessed how much and what type of L1 use should be permitted in their classes based on their students' language level.
We are looking specifically at an EFL context where both participants teachers and students in essence share two languages L1 and L2. Table 1. Interviews were transcribed and translated.
This may be considered a 'dominate discourse' because they force students to use L2 but perhaps more examination of these practices should be done. You can switch effortlessly between two differing activities.
