Preferred Abstract (Original): 

This paper revisits the pros and cons of using translation (more exactly, the mother tongue) in the teaching and learning of a foreign language and literature, and concludes the use of L1, if used properly and judiciously, is a needful, and worthy, pedagogical ally in the teaching, and learning, of English, as language and literature, across all levels from basic school through university.
