Using L1 to Master L2: A Response to Anton And DiCamilla's Socio-Cognitive Functions of L1 Collaborative Interaction in the L2 Classroom.
Wells, Gordon
Modern Language Journal, v83 n2 p248-54 Sum 1999
Responds to a previous article on native-language (L1) use in the collaborative interaction of native English-speaking adult learners of Spanish as a second language, which found that the L1 serves a critical function in students' attempts to mutually define task elements, provide each other with scaffolding help, and externalize inner speech.
