The Juntos Program will host Dr. Jim Michnowicz, Head of the Department of World Languages and Cultures and Professor of Hispanic Linguistics at NC State University. Jim will share some knowledge with us regarding Spanish Perceptions in the US. This engaging call will focus on Spanglish and what this bilingual mode of communication means for our Hispanic communities. We will first define "Spanglish", and then examine why and how speakers mix languages. We will highlight some reasons why so-called mixed language forms are a natural result of a bicultural identity and why students should be encouraged to use Spanish in the way that best reflects themselves and their communities.
When?: December 12th, 2 PM - 3 PM ET
