Translanguaging is when multilingual speakers use parts of the different languages they know to communicate. This article discusses a case study of Diego, an emergent Spanish-English bilingual preschooler who over the course of a school year developed his storytelling abilities. The authors chronicle Diego's progress throughout the year. They attribute his storytelling ability to repeated practice and allowing him to use his full language repertoire of English and Spanish to express his thoughts through stories.
