Spanish in Society
How does a specific language influence the community?
In relation to immigration, how does language play a role in cultural change?
The power of language reflects culture and influences thinking. For example, some children may experience very different cultures at home and at school. This is widely based on where the school is located. At home, some students can feel different cultures because their parents are immigrants, so their language is different.
How does a specific language influence your community?
English is the main language of Texas. So it's no surprise that many people are bilingual. Many students have parents who have immigrated here from other parts of the world. The community is based around English, so all the signs are in English, all the stores are english, everything is English!
