With emphasis on teacher and learner code-switching patterns, this book is one of the first studies to comprehensively address these issues in English as a Foreign Language (EFL) classrooms. The author examines teacher and learner code-switching through quantitative analysis, discourse analysis, conversation analysis, and mixed methods used in the study of code-switching. She addresses current debates on the amount of first language (L1) use, the functions of L1 use, the functions of teacher only code-switching patterns and the functions of teacher and learners shared code-switching patterns in foreign language classrooms. The book explores the implications of EFL classroom code-switching and how this can feed into better understanding of foreign language learning and teaching, language teacher development and new research directions in TESOL and applied linguistics. The principles and discussions of EFL classrooms are easily generalised to other language classrooms. This book will be of interest to researchers in the fields of second language acquisition, applied linguistics, and ELT, as well as researchers in the fields of sociology, education, and ethnomethodology.

Actually, the teachers and the students in the EFL classroom would code switch for different reasons so the functions of teacher code-switching and student code-switching are different. I present examples with detailed analysis to help find and clarify these functions. Finally, code-switching in the EFL classroom is found to be effective if used efficiently. Only controlled code-switching can help with English teaching and learning. I then offer some possible ways to control codeswitching.

In the multilingual societies of the 21st century, codeswitching is an everyday occurrence, and yet the use of students' first language in the EFL classroom has been consistently discouraged. This volume begins by examining current theoretical work on codeswitching and then proceeds to examine the convergence and divergence between university language teachers' beliefs about codeswitching and their classroom practice.

Also, similarities and disparities in opinions were found within and between the two groups of subjects. For example, both the teachers and students agreed that the L1 should be used to teach and learn grammar, while their opinions differed on the use of the L1 for some other pedagogical purposes. Based on discussions about the possible reasons leading to such results, and on comparisons with findings in other studies, this paper concludes that the role of the L1 should be restricted to functions regarded as facilitative, supportive and compensatory in the foreign language classroom,and that both too much dependency on or total prohibition of the L1 should be avoided.

"An important element in L2 success appears to be how learners are treated: the teaching method used with them, the language they hear, and the environment in which they are teaching" (Cook, 1991:129). Thus, for Chinese EFL teachers, the teaching pattern they use is of great importance to students' target language acquisition. However, as do most Chinese college EFL teachers for non-English majors, they are facing a classroom teaching pattern dilemma: while holding the belief that teaching English only through English is necessary for learners' better English acquisition, teachers use code switching between English and Chinese as teaching support in their teaching practice. This study is designed to cast light on the effectiveness of the two different teaching patterns, English only and code switching between English and Chinese, in Chinese EFL classrooms. Two intact classes of Chinese second year college non-English major students were chosen as respectively an experimental and a control group.

The study is conducted in a normal university (i.e., teachers university) in Southwest China. The main aim is to investigate the issue of teacher code-switching between English and Chinese in the Chinese EFL context. Teacher code-switching is a controversial issue and a focus of research for decades. However, it has not drawn much attention and has not been adequately explored in China although it is frequently observed in the Chinese EFL classroom. This situation arouses my interest, so I conduct the study, attempting to find out when and why EFL teachers code switch, and what teachers and learners think of this bilingual phenomenon. By this study, it is hoped that some useful information or implications can be got to contribute to the present EFL teaching in China. The study involves 120 student participants and 3 teacher participants.

The present study observed the use of educational code-switching to the L1 (Arabic) among six Arabic EFL teachers at Majmaah University, in Saudi Arabia. It used an a priori set of purposes based on Creswell (2003) and derived categories to examine the linguistic, social, and class management purposes behind code-switching. The instrument consisted of two parts: a demographic questionnaire and an audio recorder used in conjunction with a classroom observation sheet. Although some studies have suggested that educational code-switching to the L1 in EFL classrooms is an unconscious act (e.g., Moghadam, Abdul Samad, & Shahraki, 2012), the present study's results concluded the reverse: that the use of educational code-switching could be interpreted as an intentional practice among teachers in EFL classrooms. The results provided a more in-depth understanding of the use of educational code-switching to the L1 (Arabic). They agreed with previous studies that have found such code-switching to be very common among EFL teachers. Although participants displayed different linguistic, social, and class management purposes, analysis of the data revealed that certain purposes were more common than others, with linguistic purposes being far more common than social, class management, or other purposes. The most common linguistic purpose was to explain new words, and for class management was to clarify activities/exercises. Only two purposes, to engage in small talk with students and to connect between sentences, could not be categorized into one of the three main types.

Code-switching is a common teaching method in EFL teaching nowadays. The present study attempts to examine the advantages and disadvantages of code-switching in Chinese first and second year university non-English major EFL classes in a third-class university in south west China. Qualitative results came from interviews with 8 non-English major students and 10 teachers who taught non-English major. Questionnaire data were collected from 100 non-English major students, and examination data were collected from 60 non-English major students in Honghe University by using examination papers from the CET-4. The analysis focuses on the students' and teachers' attitudes toward the advantages and disadvantages of using Chinese in the EFL classroom and how students' learning and the teachers' teaching is influenced by using Chinese in EFL classroom. The findings provide evidence that code switching, or the use of Chinese in EFL classes is good only when it is used properly.

This book investigates first language (L1) and second language (L2) use in Chinese university classrooms, focusing on the experiences of four Chinese EFL teachers who were teaching non-English major students at four different proficiency levels. It examines these four teachers' actual use of L1 and L2, including the distribution of their L1 and L2 use; the circumstances, functions and grammatical patterns of their language use; and their language use across different frames of classroom discourse. It also explores their attitudes and beliefs regarding this issue in depth, as well as their own perceptions of and reasons for their language use and possible influencing factors. Through its detailed analysis of the teachers' language use, as well as their respective beliefs and decision-making techniques, this book contributes to L2 teachers' professional development and L2 teaching in general, especially with regard to establishing a pedagogically principled approach to L1 and L2 use.

Language teaching approaches, methods and procedures are constantly undergoing reassessment. New ideas keep emerging as the growing complexity of the means of communication and the opportunities created by technology put language skills to new uses. In addition, the political, social and economic impact of globalisation, the new demands of the labour market that result from it, the pursuit of competitiveness, the challenges of intercultural communication and the diversification of culture have opened new perspectives on the central role that foreign languages have come to play in the development of contemporary societies. This book provides an insight into the latest developments in the field and discusses the new trends in foreign language teaching in four major areas, namely methods and approaches, teacher training, innovation in the classroom, and evaluation and assessment.

Despite being highly debated in applied linguistics and L2 teaching literature, the controversial issue of (non)nativeness still remains unresolved. Contemporary critical research has questioned the theoretical foundations of the nativeness paradigm, which still exerts a strong influence in the language teaching profession. Written by well-known researchers and teacher educators from all over the world, both NSs and NNSs, the selected contributions of this volume cover a great variety of aspects related to the professional role and status of both NS and NNS teachers in terms of both perceived differences and professional concerns and challenges. The strongest aspects of this volume are the global perspectives and the implications for future research and teacher education. It is precisely this international perspective which makes this volume illustrative of different realities with a similar objective in mind: the improvement of second language teaching and teacher education. In today's world, being a NS or NNS should not really matter but rather teachers' professional competences. This publication thus provides a forum of reflection and discussion for all L2 educators who need to be aware of how much they might offer to their future students.

Translanguaging In Efl Contexts

The purpose of this book is to promote the value of translanguaging in EFL teaching contexts. To date, translanguaging has been discussed mostly in regards to US and European contexts. This book will examine the teaching beliefs and practices of teachers within a South Korean elementary school context to evaluate the practices of current teachers who use translanguaging strategies when teaching. This examination utilizes sociological theories of pedagogic discourse to discuss the consequences of language exclusion policies on the peninsula. Using these theories, it presents an argument for why EFL contexts like South Korea need to reevaluate their current policies and understandings of language learning and teaching. By embracing translanguaging as an approach, the author argues, they will transform their traditional notions of language learning and teaching in order to view teachers as bilinguals, and learners as emerging bilinguals, rather than use terms of deficiency that have traditionally been in place for such contexts. This book's unique use of sociological theories of pedagogic discourse supports a need to promote the translanguaging ideology of language teaching and learning.

Classroom Interactions as Cross-Cultural Encounters is about native English speakers teaching English as a global language in non-English speaking countries. Through analysis of naturally occurring dialogic encounters, the authors examine the multifaceted ways in which teachers and students utilize diverse communicative resources to construct, display, and negotiate their identities as teachers, learners, and language users, with different pedagogic, institutional, social, and political implications. A range of issues in applied linguistics is addressed, including linguistic imperialism, post-colonial theories, micropolitics of classroom interaction, language and identity, and bilingual classroom practices. Intended to help TESOL professionals of different cultural backgrounds, working in different sociocultural contexts, to critically understand how non-assimilationist, dialogic intercultultural communication with students can be achieved and built on for mutual cultural and linguistic enrichment and empowerment, this book: *emphasizes the sociocultural meanings and micropolitics of classroom interactions that reveal the complex realities of power and identity negotiations in cross-cultural interactions in ELT (English Language Teaching) classroom contexts; *revisits and reconstitutes the notion of native-speakerness and repositions the roles of native and non-native English teachers in the TESOL profession in the contexts of decolonization and globalization; *highlights the need to mobilize intercultural communicative resources for global communication; *addresses two major concerns of EFL (English as a Foreign Language) classroom researchers and teachers: student resistance and learning motivation; and *examines and analyzes the changing ideologies (both explicit and implicit) of teachers and students about English learning in the context of a post-colonial society, and how these ideologies are being enacted, reproduced, but also sometimes contested in EFL classroom interactions. Each chapter includes Questions for Reflection and Discussion to promote critical thinking and understanding of the issues discussed. Tuning-In discussion questions are provided in the three chapters on classroom data analysis to activate readers interpretive schemas before they examine the actual classroom episodes. The data are from an ethnographic study in post-colonial Hong Kong secondary schools involving four native English-speaker teachers and two bilingual Cantonese-English speaking teachers engaged in intercultural classroom dialogues with their Cantonese Hong Kong students. The rich, naturally occurring classroom data and in-depth analyses provide useful pedagogical materials for courses in EFL teacher education programs on classroom discourse analysis from sociocultural perspectives.
