abstract

In the current study, code-switching is analysed in the context of an English as a Foreign Language class. Following a brief review of the literature on the relationship between code-switching and language teaching, an observational study involving forty-one students in two classes is presented. The analysis is based on class observations, duly recorded and transcribed, and on two questionnaires completed by students and their teacher. Results reveal some positive effects of code alternation in the English as a foreign language classroom.
