That was a very interesting event you described. I too was surprised when you said she began to speak in English and continued on with it. I wonder if it has with preference. Her exclamation of "why" made me wonder if she simply prefered Spanish and questioned the importance or insistence that she speak in English. It would be interesting to know how much experience she has with the language, whether family members, friends, and school mates all speak one or the other language or both, and which one she is encouraged to use.

Nice field note.
