WalkerKyleForrest's curator insight, March 21, 2014 10:22 AM

Many children are forced to learn a different language from what they grew up with. With this setback, many of their feeling cannot be seen, in a negative way. But as  they accomadate to their languages, they can begin to comprimise and solve problems, live happily ever after.

BandKids13-14's curator insight, April 3, 2014 10:24 AM

I have met people that aren't from America that speak Spanish, and when they get mad or excited then they speak in their native language. I didn't know that some people didn't do that. It's weird that some people switch languages while they are mad or excited. My mind doesn't even work that fast on my first language. It's amazing how the human mind works.

In some cases when people are able to speak more than one language and they are in pain, in trouble, are sad, or are angry they some times use other languages then the one they grew up learning. Sometimes it is easier expressing yourself using a foreign language. Using a foreign language sometimes  helps expressing yourself easier .~Amanda
