Code-Switching: How bilinguals switch between languages

People who learn two languages from an early age can switch between languages without even a second thought, sometimes even in the same sentence: It is known as “code-switching”. But how do they do it?

According to research, these lucky individuals have two separate processing modes/sound systems for each language, meaning that they can easily be distinguished in their head. When discussing the differences between two languages, the most obvious differences of words and grammatical rules are there, but people forget the simplest reason is that the sounds for each language are different.

Spanish: The way to Victory

Some days ago, our Football National Team won the Eurocup for the second time (and don’t forget the World Cup, too). The celebrations were constant, and all of us Spaniards came together to celebrate it. Not only because we like football, but also because we feel that the players are an example of self-improvement for all of us.

That is why we have thought about communicating our pride and our eagerness for self-improvement to our Spanish as a Foreign Language students. Take advantage of our enthusiasm and register to obtain the DELE! You know that it means “Diploma de Español como Lengua Extranjera”, but in Spanish it is also the acronym for ““Disciplina, Esfuerzo, Lucha y Éxito” (“Discipline, Effort, Fight and Success”): the qualities that you all possess.

The way to Victory

Truth is that learning Spanish is like playing a football game. Hard training is required, we won’t deny that, but it also has a reward. If you obtain the DELE you will have a title that will certify you as the best in the second language in the world… Do you imagine how many goals you could score in your life at work thanks to this? Don’t miss the chance of being a part of the Spanish Language National Team.

The August exams are very close and we use this opportunity to inform you that, if you are interested, you can ask us about our preparation courses. We will be happy to help you out, but hurry up! The matriculation period ends on July 27th!*.

*Remember the Next DELE Exam Date: 24th August

We have the football champions in Spain… But we also want to have the Spanish Language world champions!
