Now, I know how poor Jessica Alba feels. Her family didn’t pass on the language according to her interview with Latina magazine a couple of months back. Latina magazine, which by the way used to be in English and in Spanish, is now in English only with a few Spanish language ads sprinkled in.
My upcoming piece focuses on “losing the language.” How Spanish started on the same foot as English in my life but became the language of my home as I was sent off to school and outgrew early bilingual elementary education. It is based on my blog, Losing the Language.
