    On the one hand, I can see the logic of the argument-it’s what is done in every day life and it’s an essential skill-research and independent learning/actions for the future. That said, on the other hand, for long term-efficiency in language acquistion and use, it can also be worthwhile persevering with prohibiting use it to ensure the learning sinks in, progress is made and next time they won’t need to look it up. A combination seems ideal these days, say use for continuous assessment purposes but no use for “sit-down” exams?
