He argues, “for an authentic code switching that involves valuing oneself and one 's culture while appreciating and understanding the codes of other cultures. It involves fluidly navigating multiple spaces and, in the process, creating new codes that embrace a more hybridized identity” (Emdin 178). To gain a hybrid identity, students obviously must obtain knowledge of other cultures. A great place for this would be in a class of immigrants from all over different parts of the world.

Additionally, I have created more goals that I hope will make this educational identity multidimensional. I want to learn as many languages as I can in order to connect with people on a global scale. Also, I hope to build a connection with my professors and mentors to learn about their journey in their educational career. Moreover, I plan to combine a variety of subjects such as Psychology, Philosophy, Sociology, Biology, Geology, Politics, Journalism, and English Literature in conjunction with Anthropology in order to think critically and holistically.

First of all, Language Awareness is a bridge which helps to connect English and foreign language in curriculum (Hawkins 1974 cited in Hawkins 1999). It provides a forum for learners and teachers to discuss a variety of languages in common vocabularies. For instance, children have the opportunity to learn numbers, colours and animals in three languages.
