Pladevall, E. & Vraciu, A. (in preparation). “Scaffolding Early EFL – L1 Use in Oral Narratives by CLIL and non-CLIL Young Learners“. Learning Foreign Languages in Primary School: Research Insights. Ed. María del Pilar García Mayo. Bristol : Multilingual Matters.
From 16th to 18th April, 2015 I will be in Madrid attending the annual conference of the Asociación española de lingüística aplicada.
The paper I am presenting together with my colleague Dr. Pladevall looks at patterns of L1 use in the oral production of young learners with CLIL and EFL instruction.
