First Language Use in Second and Foreign Language Learning, Paperback

First Language Use in Second and Foreign Language Learning Paperback

Edited by Miles Turnbull, Jennifer Dailey-O'Cain

Part of the Second Language Acquisition series



This volume offers fresh perspectives on a controversial issue in applied linguistics and language teaching by focusing on the use of the first language in communicative or immersion-type classrooms.

It includes new work by both new and established scholars in educational scholarship, second language acquisition, and sociolinguistics, as well as in a variety of languages, countries, and educational contexts.

Through its focus at the intersection of theory, practice, curriculum and policy, the book demands a reconceptualization of code-switching as something that both proficient and aspiring bilinguals do naturally, and as a practice that is inherently linked with bilingual code-switching.
