6. Language awareness in everyday life

(This task can also be done in pairs or groups.)

Have you noticed that different languages play different roles in your everyday life? Does your community—friends, family, neighbourhood, school, hobbies—encourage or discourage you to use different languages?

Is it generally acceptable to mix and switch between several different languages in your everyday life? If your answer is dependent on the context or the person you are talking to, how and why do they differ?
