  • The main argument of this study is that foreign language learning can support L1 development. This is not a new idea because Vygotsky (1962: 110) wrote the following: “.... a foreign language facilitates mastering the higher forms of the native tongue. The child learns to see his language as one particular system among many, to view its phenomena under more general categories and this leads to awareness of his linguistic operations”.
