Agenda

For years the use of L1 has been banned from second/foreign language classrooms worldwide - to such an extent that it has become a taboo in the field. We put off reflecting and having conversations about it. What are the reasons for that? What is the impact this decision has on us teachers, but more importantly on learning?
