Este artículo es interesante porque es de lo que estamos hablando en clase. Me he dado cuenta que cada vez más comerciales, películas y otros medios de comunicación están usando la alternancia de códigos para llamar la atención de los consumidores de habla hispana. Como dice el que narra el video, la alternancia de códigos es una manera de mostrar nuestra cultura y que estamos orgullos de nuestro idioma. Creo que las personas tienen que aceptar los diferentes idiomas y no es necesario que pierdan el primer idioma para ser aceptados en cualquier sociedad. Por ejemplo, a mi me gusta escuchar canciones en otros idiomas, y me gustaría aprender más idiomas y más acerca de las variaciones del español. Si tuviera más tiempo libre en mi horario, creo que tomaría una clase de otro idioma.

Este artículo se me hace interesante porque me estoy dando cuenta mas y mas que code switching no solo es algo que he oyido toda mi vida sino algo que hoy en día esta usando los comerciales de los Estados Unidos para vender cosas. Se me hace chistoso que he oyido code switching toda mi vida en programas de television, en musica y en dialogo entre gente toda mi vida pero nunca me habia dado cuenta. Es interesante pensar que algo que es muy normal y que ha sido parte de toda la vida de unos hispanos es algo que ahora estan usando negocios para vender mas cosas. Creo que este articulo muestra que tanto ha cresido la poblacion de latinos en los Estados Unidos. Hay tan gran poblacion de latinos en los Estados Unidos que hasta los comerciales estan usando un poco de español para llamar la atencion a esta poblacion especifica.
