Communication Strategies among Indonesian Emergent Bilinguals in Mainstream EFL Classroom
Keywords:communication strategies, emergent bilinguals
This study aims to enrich the already large body of research on communication strategies which is still, to the best of my knowledge, lacking in rich description about the use of CSs among emergent bilinguals. This qualitative study provides an insight to language practitioners that CSs among emergent bilinguals develop in accordance with their age. Some minor findings also suggest that CSs is influenced more by cognitive development and willingness to communicate (WTC).
