Hi again Djamila Smile I teach at the university and I know it's somehow different but since the first day I started; my "slogan" was not to use any other language but English. Some teachers told me that I will use French or Arabic sooner or later but thanks God I always managed to explain many concepts in English and encouraged my students to use dictionaries (English-English). It is working pretty well I dare say, I oblige them to talk in English and if they try to communicate with me using any other language I just say "sorry I don't understand a word of what you are saying, I can't help you". (even outside the classroom, they have to talk in English with me) I know it's somehow harsh but I noticed that they do their best to reach me and communicate with me (it's not the teacher who should go to his students but they have to reach him or her).
I always tell them that I don't mind if they make mistakes while using English because that's how we learn. They shouldn't be afraid using English themselves.

Every teacher has his own method s/he believes in, and this is what I strongly believe in Smile

You're welcome dear. Yes, do send me that article please I wanna have a look at it. Have you read my friend's reply, he is saying that he uses other languages than English when teaching abstract concepts but some inspectors don't like it.

Hi Djamila Smile
I have received your article and had a brief look at it. It is indeed a great and very interesting article. So I had in mind to upload it because I know how helpful it will be for many students of didactics. So here is the link for downloading it

http://ifile.it/n1o306c

I will read it scrupulously in the coming days, as soon as I have some time. And Iíll be most delighted to see the progress of your research and if I can be of some help (though didactics is not my field) I'll give it a try with great pleasure. Good luck sister
