Número seven requires one final ejemplo: If you met up with another native English speaking person in Brazil, Colombia or Dominican Republic, your inclination would be to speak with them in English, right? After all, this is both your native language with trendy words that have no real translation. Do not be offended when two Latinos speak to each other en Español in your presence. It is our way of connecting and validating our heritage. If we get carried away, and you feel uncomfortable, for sure, say something. Avoid, “This is America, speak English.”
Most bilingual Latinos refrain from extended Spanish conversations when in English only company. But, there are times, including topics of the heart, of my spirit, which I can only express in Spanish.
I suffer only in Spanish. I trust you understand.
