liveblogging lab

i work in a bilingual lab, so we all speak english and french, but two of us also speak spanish and one of the phd students speaks arabic. so basically this results in us speaking a version of what we call “franglais” (french and english mixed together) that also encompasses several spanish phrases and the 2 arabic words that we all know. and to us this is normal because it’s how we all interact every day, but last week we had a volunteer come in for one of our studies and we were getting her set up in the chair and she just gave us this really confused look and then whispered “what language are you speaking?”
