Abstract

This case study was qualitatively done to investigate the types of codeswitching
and the reasons of code-switching occur in a formal situation; classroom
setting among a group of TESL students in UiTM Bandaraya Melaka. The four
subjects were purposively sampling which their proficiency level were determined by
using the Malaysian University English Test (MUET) selected from 55 TESL students
to be investigated. The findings showed that there are two types of code-switching
found during the presentations which are; inter-sentential and intra-sentential codeswitching.
There are also several reasons found why they code-switched during the
presentation which are to menisfest power, to obvibiate difficulty, to add emphasis, to
lower language barrier and to reiterate messages. The instruments used in this case
