Abstract

This paper discusses the value of English-only classrooms in Japanese universities. Most, if not all, teachers realize the benefits of conducting language lessons purely in the language being learned but find it easier to solve communication breakdowns in the class by using the students' first language. I believe that the learners will benefit from being involved in 'negotiation of meaning' with the teacher.
