Using the First Language in the Classroom.
Cook, Vivian
Canadian Modern Language Review, v57 n3 p402-23 Mar 2001
Argues for the re-examination of the time-honored view that the first language (L1) should be avoided in the classroom by teachers and students. Examines possible justifications for use of the first language, outlines teaching methods that actively employ the L1, and describes some of the different ways that the L1 may be used positively by teachers and students.
