2015-04-25 02:45:45 -0400 asked a question Should the mother tongue be used in language teaching?

Hi!

I teach English as a second language to high school students and I have always thought that I should use the English language only whenever I'm inside the classroom. However, I have recently read a study that says explanations should be in the mother tongue. I suppose this is true for beginners but how about for those who already have a basic knowledge on grammar?

Thank you very much for responding to this.

Hi!

I've read in one grammar book that determiners, though function as adjectives, are a separate word class from the rest of the parts of speech. In addition, I've also read in a different grammar book that interjections are not even a part of speech.

It would be a great help if you can clarify these to me.

Thanks in advance!
