    From my point of view, as teachers we need to find out the reasons why Ss engage in tasks using their L1; it’s not only a question of level but also the given issue addresses: their motivation, their understanding of our instructions, the need for them to have a break.

    In addition to it, I sometimes resort to language one, especially with children, at the end of the lesson when they personally evaluate their performance and go into details about language areas which need further clarification.
