English Language Learners (ELLs) early schooling often involves a mix of their native (L1) and second (L2) languages. Spanglish speakers take this one step further and employ a hybrid language practice to compensate for their lack of fluency in both Spanish and English. Unlike conventional ELLs, these students use the two languages simultaneously because of a lack of proficiency in either. This article offers techniques and strategies for assisting Spanglish-speaking students in the science classroom.
