In almost all TEFL training courses, trainees are told that L1 (also known as the first language that students speak) must be reduced and the students’ L2 (this being English). If you have studied a foreign language and you share the classroom with other students who use the same L1 as yourself, then you may feel more inclined to communicate in that language. This can be the same for your students and you may find it challenging to get your students to speak English. In this blog post, I share five tips to reduce L1 in the English classroom.
Watch the video above to learn more about how I try to reduce L1 in the classroom. If you have any ideas about reducing L1 in the classroom, please share below.
