Oxforddictionaries.com defines code-switching as “The practice of alternating between two or more languages or varieties of language in conversation”. For many of us who are #BLACKandSTEM, code-switching involves, not just linguistics, but every category of adjustments that we make in order to operate in a certain environment.
Today’s #BLACKandSTEM focuses on our experiences with code-switching. Share your stories, your code-switch translations, and your perceptions of the advantages and disadvantages of code-switching.
