Anton, Maria; DiCamilla, Frederick
Canadian Modern Language Review, v54 n3 p314-42 Apr 1998
A study of native language (L1) use in the collaborative interaction of five dyads of native English-speaking adult learners of Spanish as a second language (L2) found that L1 serves a critical function in students' attempts to mutually define task elements, provide each other with scaffolding help, and externalize inner speech.
