“When translanguaging emergent learners  activate                                                                      Their multilingual-multicultural dignity they elevate                                                                When cognition,  languages and cultures they integrate                                                               they show local/global communities how to TRANScommunicate                                          An important Humankind-improving role they could play:                                                     that of translanguaging for peaceful purposes every day”


Jenni Vinson, an Ed.D. candidate at Texas A&M University Kingsville, created this website inspired by García’s work on translanguaging.
