ABSTRACT. When and how much L1 use in EFL has been a hotly debated problem among scholars over the decades. Since the existence of communicative approaches like direct method and audio-lingual method that prohibits the L1 in EFL classrooms the discussion on the subject has grown. This paper analyzes the role and effect of L1 in the English EFL classroom setting. Researches and studies had been made by professionals have been used as a resource. In this article, I am going to show you the advantages and disadvantages of using and not using the first language besides how and when the first language should be used in foreign language classrooms. Furthermore, my observations as an EFL teacher has been presented in the study. INTRODUCTION. First language L1 use in English as a foreign language EFL classroom has been the focus of ongoing discussion by the researchers over the years since the existence of communicative approaches like direct method, audio, lingual method. It is easy to say that researchers have divided into two groups on the discussion, first who support monolingual classes and secondly researchers that support the idea of using L1.

In my childhood I wished to become someone who can predict the future. But as my maturity grew with my age I aspired to become a leader who can make use of logic as a precursor to make decisions for future of any organization, that the person would work with. I chose science in my twelfth because of my passion for mathematics and physics, but selecting the appropriate undergraduate course was a really challenging decision for me, I elected engineering because I was keen to understand the application of science, which had a lot to do with the application of mind. I felt that Information Technology would be an evident choice of my specialization in engineering to develop my analytical ability through the learning of computer programming because I believed that a blend of applied science, mathematics and analytical skills is the key ingredient for the management skills to make wise future projections. Though commenced with the basics of almost all relevant fields of engineering my undergraduate course gradually focused into the core of computer science such as Operating Systems, Database Management, Systems Object, oriented programming, Networking etc.
