Para Teresa – Study Guide 1. Whether you are bi-lingual or not, was your reaction of the author switching between English and Spanish? (Please note the translations are in the footnotes.) It created the impact that Ines was truly a Mexican-American. She seen both worlds and she gladly represents and appreciates her culture. She lets the reader know that the way the children conversed was not in American it was in Spanish. It gives us more of a cultual background and understanding of the author. 2. Would the poem have a different impact if it were only in English? Why or why not? Yes, because I would have just read it in English. I would’ve forgot that she was of hispanic decent if I didn’t even know her name. The poem involves us in her culture. 3. What does Hernandez mean when she states that she and Teresa are similar? They both are Mexican. They both have the ability to be better than their parents and they should represent their families with honor. 4.
