Question: For a group of B2/C1 teenagers that have done FCE, which language do you think they will write better in, L1 or L2?
My Answer: L1, of course.
Their Answer: English. We don’t do anywhere near as much writing in L1 (Spanish in Argentina, BTW) as we do in English. We’re much better at structured writing in English.
Could this really be the case? My Spanish isn’t good enough to judge their writing but I might get a colleague to look at some of their Spanish compositions.
Has anyone else encountered this?
