I asked the thirty-six third year students at my Beautiful Mountain School. Here is what they had to say:I think it`s better if there is an ALT (if it`s Melissa).
ALTs are interesting! They keep the conversation flowing! I enjoyed it!
It`s better if there is an ALT. The lessons are easier to understand (with the ALT).
I think it is necessary. We can remember foreigner's pronunciation and speak at ease with the ALT.
Yes! The ALT is interesting (funny). I think using English and associating with foreigners is important.
I think it is very important because we can learn about the ALT"s country and culture (we can hear about celebrities and many different things that we don`t know about).
