What’s Spanglish?

That feeling I get when I’m so overwhelmed with my emotions, which I can’t seem to communicate them in English so I switch to Spanish. It always goes back to my childhood; Spanish was always spoken at home.

My parents raised us to be proud of our roots. Speaking Spanish was there way to keep a foot in Mexico and the other in the U.S. It wasn’t until third grade of my transition to an English class, that I picked up speaking both languages when I talked to my friends and siblings.

Spanglish is a way to express your ideas, thoughts and feelings that are better fitted with two languages. It also is a way to not forget our culture, because family for Latinos means everything to us.
