    • Marvin, I like your article. I also communicate in different ways depending on who I am with and the location of the situation. The way I communicate in class is different from the way I communicate outside of school, such as with friends or with family members. Learning when is the right time to speak to one person, is an important skill to have. I found an article that talks about types of communication which you may want to look at (https://www.conovercompany.com/6-types-of-communication/). Anyways, thanks for your post and I look forward to see what you write next.

    • Marvin, Iam glad to hear that you agree with being bilingual is an advantage when it comes to absorbing information. I believe that it is a great important skill to being bilingual, but we must be conscious of others when it comes to word choice. Over time diffrent words have evolved over time at a diffrent rate all over the world; so one may take offense into a common used word; In spainish Chino is used to identify asians but in english it translates to Chink- which is a slang word. Loved to hear your thoughts on this matter, but I would say to stay mindful!

      Look at this article about research about how being bilingual is a advantage
