When I first put this poster up my students were silent and just read it not even realizing which language they were reading, Spanish or English and then when they realized what happened they all shared that moment of realization of how natural speaking two languages can feel. Huge confidence builder!

Nice idea, mediocre execution

Great idea to promote code-switching, but the wording isn't quite right. If the "start a" were only "start to," it would more accurately reflect natural code-switching. Still, I put it up in my classroom to promote the idea that "Spanglish" is not a negative for competent bilinguals.

For students learning Spanish, sometimes sharing classes with heritage learners, and interacting with members of our faculty and staff, this poster demonstrates "interlanguage", that is nothing to be ashamed of! Heavy-enough card stock, good size.

Really cute poster. My students didn't realize that it was in two languages at first!
