dela Rosa, Rona
Journal on English Language Teaching, v6 n4 p13-18 Oct-Dec 2016
Undeniably, one language may be considered more valuable than other languages. Hence, most bilingual communities suffer from language imbalances. The present study attempts to identify the factors of code-switching during classroom presentations. Its functions were identified through analysing conversational contexts in which it occurs. Through descriptive method, a total of 258 students participated in the study. Findings revealed that the core factor on why students resort to code-switching during classroom presentations is due to a limited English vocabulary. Other factors were explored in the study. These results will provide information and understanding of students' learning motivation by looking into factors that contribute to code-switching during classroom presentations.
