    Abstract

    ABSTRACT This study explores the range of modifications (input, interaction, and information choice) used by non-native speaker EFL teachers in two private primary schools in Indonesia. Data were recorded over a number of classrooms teaching sessions and analysed to identify the modifications. The analysis reveals that both teachers use the same forms of speech modifications with the exception of the use of code-switching. Moreover, the degree of English to which students are exposed depends on their initial English proficiency. The extent and type of these teachers’ speech modifications are determined by contextual issues. Issues such as school policies, classroom management, and the background and expectations of students and their parents, influence the way in which speech modifications are employed by teachers.
