Surveys- English Only Classrooms

Hello Readers,

There's a hot debate going on among many ESL teachers, and that is whether we should allow the students or ourselves to speak their mother tongue in the classroom. What's your experience? Do you allow other languages to be used in your classroom...

...or do you have an English-only classroom?
