This paper is a research about the perspectives about Spanglish according to the users. The research was divided in two parts. A total of 50 individuals participated in the first part of the research and a total of 35 in the second part (same participants from the first part) between 15 to 30 years of age, living in Shelbyville, Tennessee. In the first part they answered a questionnaire and in the second one they viewed a prezi presentation about facts of Spanglish and answered another questionnaire according to what they had viewed. They answered questions like what is the meaning of Spanglish, it should be include on literacy materials, do you think Spanglish is a language, etc. The results in general showed that the participants agree that they use Spanglish in their everyday life but they do not agree that it should be included in literacy materials. The participants concluded that they use Spanglish in their everyday life and is a way to communicate between their peers but they do not think that it should be included on literacy materials because is not a language. Participants need to understand and acknowledge that Spanglish is everywhere and even in literacy materials. (Contains 11 graphs and 1 table.)
