My Multilingual Personalities

There are two arguments. One thinks English is a secret language because their parents are not fluent with English. Also, he thinks English is more playful for him comparing with Spanish which Spanish is too emotional to him. For the other one, she thinks English is like a mask that she put on, and she is more comfortable with Spanish. She doesn’t feel like part of American even she speaks fluent English. I’m more on the girl’s side, because it’s the same for me, actually worse. I can’t speak fluent English plus whenever people talk to me in English, I need to translate the words into Chinese first and then figure out what it means. This is very difficult to me, and I think a lot of people like to be in their comfort zone, just like me.
