    English-Only Policies

    i'm doing some research about English-only policies and how to make them work. Does anyone have good ideas for how to encourage students to speak English with each other in the hallways and between classes?

    If you're in the US, it shouldn't be a problem, English will be caught like a virus. Elsewhere, it depends on determination and discipline, and generally doesn't work.

    Sometimes they don't last long; it can be difficult to maintain the enthusiasm to keep going.
