4factors responsible for L1 attrition. Hence, the influence of the L2, partly responsible for the simplificatory changes affecting the L1 (Seliger & Vago, 1991), was considered negative. The stress given to the necessity of considering the L2 speaker as a L2 user, whose language has not to be judged in comparison with native standards, but is a new language in its own right (Cook, 2002), lead to a reconsideration of the L1 influence on the L2. The ‘multi-competence’ (Cook, 1991) the bilingual speaker possesses is a fusion of the two separate systems and not a sum of them. Teaching methods have hence to consider the importance of the L1 for L2 learners, as it constitutes an important source available to them. There is hence no need to discourage the use of it in class as instead some teaching methodology, proceeding from the idea of coordinate bilingualism (Weinreich, 1953) does. The L2 learner can access the second language through the L1. On the other hand, also the effects of the L2 on the L1 appeared to have some benefits. Studies on the influence of FL learning on L1 skills, as the one conducted by Papp (1991) 4 with Hungarian children, had already proved the occurrence of positive changes, especially on metalinguistic awareness and syntactic complexity. Considering instead the acquisition of a second language in a L2 environment, the situation becomes more complex. Positive and negative effects of the L2 on the L1 seem to merge in what is a new linguistic system, in which the L1 is substantially different from the monolingual norm. However, as stressed again by Cook (2003), it is difficult to judge those changes as negative as they constitute an integral part of the positive phenomenon of multi- competence development. between L1 and L2 in Language Attrition.
