Own-language use in ELT: exploring global practices and attitudes | TeachingEnglish | British Council | BBC

Own-language use in ELT: exploring global practices and attitudes | TeachingEnglish | British Council | BBC | Linguistics | Scoop.it

In this research paper Graham Hall and Guy Cook explore teacher attitudes to own-language use in the classroom. They conducted a global survey and interviews with practising teachers.
They found evidence of widespread own-language use within ELT, and suggest that teachers’ attitudes towards own-language use, and their classroom practices, are more complex than usually acknowledged. The findings also suggest that there is a potential gap between mainstream ELT literature and teachers’ practices on the ground.
