Billingualism I am billingual and remember in kindergarden being able to speak both  english and spanish. My parents taught me to speak to them in english and  amongst my sibling we spoke english. I feel though that if I had been taught in  school spanish that It would have affected my academics. As of this day I am still  billingual and can understand spanish very well it has been beneficial to me in  my life to speak tow languages. Article 1: From Rosalie Pedana writes about her experience being a teacher in a  billingual education environment. She her self came from an immigrant family  who did not know any enlish. She realized as she became a billingual teacher  that ot wasn’t the students or education that was flawed but In fact blillingual  education itself. She feels that billingual education denies a child to develop  naturally and effective with their own lan languge.
