Title: First Language Use in Second and Foreign Language Learning
Series Title: Second Language Acquisition
Publisher: Multilingual Matters
This book focuses on the use of the first language in communicative or immersion-type classrooms. Through the intersection of theory, practice, curriculum and policy, the volume calls for 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.
