Oi Antonio, how are you doing today?
Estou indo bem! How was your wekend, bom?
Lydia, do you know why some of my emergent bilingual students are speaking English and Portugues in class.
I thought Code switching meant they only speak one language at a time.
Unlike the theory of code switching, students always have access to their full language repertoire and don't simply switch from speaking one language to another.
I think what you are observing is called Translanguaging.
Speakers of more than one language often speak both languages interchangeably.
I'v been asking the students to only use English in class because I though it would help them learn faster. Should I stop doing this?
Oh so it's sort of like Spanglish then!
Definitely don't tell students to stop speaking their home languages.
Try doing some research on translanguaging pedagogy.I think you will find your emergent bilingual students will learn much more when they can utilize their entire language arsenal in class.
I will look into that, thank you for the wonderful advice and information Lydia!
